For the canopy I cut the shape right out of the fuselage
once i had it together. Then I built under and around it
with apoxie sculpt, so I built the riser right into it. I formed
it today it came out pretty good! ;D
I went and gutted the bottom out it was really bothering
me, I got away from the kit and not sure why? LOL But
I want the wing to mount under the hull instead of in the
fender well like I had it. I just never had the plate recessed
far enough up in the skirt. It will allow me to work on the cockpit
much easier now as well.
I took the opportunity to lay in some matting while everything
was gutted to really strengthen the seams up.
It's pretty strong now I am holding all the weight by the fender
in this picture.
