John, you mentioned having problems with the fairing when you used the support pieces. I found the curve was wrong (somehow) and part 18 would not fit the curve of the model. I used a #5 centering ring and drew the arc on the part and it fits. I haven't glued it yet or tried to fit the fairing onto it.

I had a problem with the fit of the cockpit section. I'm trying to figure out how to fix that to make it presentable. I may cut slits along the nose wheel doors and "scootch" the cockpit section slightly to fit the fuselage.

I've found that cutting the first small section of 5 and attaching the cockpit to it and THEN gluing the whole thing to the rest of the fuselage makes a much better joint. You are able to get inside and massage any areas that want to be ornery........ this is one of the problems with scaling up. Minor problems with fit at a smaller scale are magnified with the increase in size.

I'll redo the arc of the part and upload another PDF.

Here is the revised version......... I added in some more #5 formers....just to take up space

I stretched number 18 until the inside arch fit the arae of part 5 former, as opposed to just redrawing the arc over the part. If it messed it up, let me know and I'll redo it again

I thought I was being clever and formed the fuselage in one piece. I don't want to tear the model apart to fix that fit issue. I'll solve it another way. Thanks for redoing the bottom parts.

I think that's because it quickly disappeared behind the new downloads display
Thank you for this one
By the way, do you have a blank version of the A-320 ?
Best regards
Ronan

Edit: and which software do you use ?
