@ Glen - agreed

You know that Iím not an enthusiast of having parts printed on the back cover. So, it should be no surprise to notice that those parts were promptly covered with the outer skin, which fit very well.

WOW this is beautiful... I can't imagine how good the completed model will look. What's your secret sauce?

Ha, this will certainly provide strength to the cockpit area Ricardo! Well done, your trick with slightly thinning the formers has worked out well.

Cheers,
Erik

Sorry, I meant to say "trimming" the formers...

@ Falco - it is secret Just kiddying
@ Erik - right, and I recommend the trick. It is incredible how the double skin makes the assembly rigid. It can be handled almost carelessly.

If, for obvious reasons, there is not a lot of structure in the cockpit section, there is no lack of it in the nose!

Ricardo,

What tools do you use to get such sharp cuts?

@ Gene - I enclose a picture with the main tools. The knife is no longer the same but the new one is pretty similar. I sharpen it quite often when cutting card...
@ Falco - right! Halinski had it right in 2005 and they didn't make any major change.

The engine cowling fits well, even if very, very tightly. Regarding the engine exhaust parts, I delaminated them and added card parts to make the assembly less tricky.
