Nice to have you onboard Terry looking good so far and with 4 months left you should have no problems getting it completed

The office is done with just a few little bits to add once it has been fiited in to the plane. The fitting how ever is proving to be a headache!!! I have sanded the side walls of the tub to within 0.01 of there life and it lokks like the aircraft side wall are going to have the same treatment. I have also managed to crack the lower half of the body. So all in all I am having fun ........NOT!!!!

I had joined the two fuselage sections together (dry fitting first) however when I got home from work today I had two big gaps either side. I decided rather than try filling them as was to split the two sections again. Once apart I ground the cockpit base down again and got the two halves to close up properly. Now all I have to do is fill and rub down as there is a step in the joins where the cockpit area is. Now I have two choices as I see: scribe the panel lines in that will be lost or do away with some of them. Any suggestions would be great.
