Well-- I was able to close up the gaps in the fuselage, but did so with a bit of a lip on one side...on to sanding ;)



Painted my screens with some bright green and orange craft paint...looks the part from the outside looking in ;)

Ayup...going to be busy ;) Gonna resist the urge to try using power tools as it would probably only end badly ;)

Put Masking Tape on the Side that doesn’t need sanding as a sacrificial zone.... then when your HIGH point has diminished to almost perfect... Remove your Tape and Blend both surfaces together...

This is gonna look good my friend....

Nice progress, and don't resist the power tools. A good circular saw can come in handy at times.

Thanks Myke...I was able to take care of things pretty well with just a sanding stick and some elbow grease ;)

So far though, I have the wings and stabs on and thanks to Tenax, very little seam issues...

Although now that I look, a touch of Tenax ought to fix that wing intake well enough ;)

Coming together really well. I love the shape of this plane!

I'm with you on that chest cold too. Been fighting the man flu for about 2 weeks now.
