Well after a rather annoying discovery and my own fickle mind a few things have been, err changed.

The flaps. All that lovely PE in the flaps boxes is now a crumpled mess in the bottom of the trash can. Having the flaps down with the wings up looked, bluntly said, just wrong. The flaps could not go in before the PE was gone... Hey Ho.

The fitting of the wings in the folded position is a pain in the :censored2: not only because the fixings are small and three points to line up in one go, but also because I choose to put the wings on last thing. With rocket pods, under carriage and doors, etc., the general size and shape make it hard to hold both the aircraft and the wing and get the glue on!!! Took me almost a bleedin hour to glue two wings on!

I will leave you with this and take a few more photos tomorrow.
