Progress report: with the excellent modeling weather we're having (gray, drizzly, and damp), I spent several hours cutting out formers yesterday. Despite Airdave's best efforts to teach me to use a straightedge, I cut everything freehand with a trusty #11 blade in a hobby knife. I'm concentrating on making vertical cuts, since in the past I've had a tendency to bevel my cuts, and I'm improving, though still not perfect. I have the hull pieces from two of the three sheets of formers cut out, plus a few from the bogie suspension that just happened to be there. Unfortunately, I overdid it a little and woke up this morning with Paper Modeler's Index Finger syndrome -- a very sore fingertip. I'm not sure how much I can get done today. No pictures yet, so far it just looks like a pile of scraps.
