Beautiful craftsmanship, Peter. This looks to be a real show stopper when complete!

Looking very nice. Marek seems to have transitioned to the wire fastening of the control surfaces on his newer designs - it works very nicely IMHO.

Thanks Ron & Don... Having the movable control surfaces is a big plus IMO, and I'm using soft copper wire so that I can adjust the position I want them in later. Has been a real pleasure to work on so far, with no problems on what goes where.

Excellent work, Peter! I also find the coloring of this particular kit to be a plus.

Cheers!

Looking mighty fine. Your work is beautifully clean - a talent I have yet to develop.

Thanks Ron.. and your work always looks clean to me!!!!!

Assembled the after part of the fuselage, taking care to shape and bevel my formers so I don't end up getting bulges when the sections are put together. Also glued up my wheel blanks..

Fuselage parts..

Sections completed, and you can see where I added tissue to give more body to the sections. Just using small bits, and just packing it enough without distorting the shape.


Sections glued together.. everything lined up pretty well.

Wheel parts, and the blanks glued up and set aside to dry.Will sand them to shape tomorrow.
