Well I'm not real happy about this; main IP assembly is wider than the area it's supposed to fit into, meaning some of the instrumentation is going to be lost. :( I'll keep playing with it, and see what I can figure out.

Know how you feel - it's sure is a downer. Hope you find a solution that will let you keep the detail on the panel, as it sure looks good.

Thanks Peter, but I now believe the detail will simply be lost, as sidewalls are as spread out as far as they can get.

The moment of truth; the ceremonial "closing of the fuselage halves". Fit of most parts is more than acceptable, (except the IP). With any luck, tomorrow or Monday I begin painting.

Just makes you wonder, what were they thinking and if they actually test built the kit.

Actually, it's the Black Box/Avionix pit that's giving me trouble, but I'll just live with it. I'm certainly not going to scratch a new panel, though I certainly considered it.

I hate it when this happens. Removing shock cone temporarily while working on fuselage, I didn't realize I had gotten super glue on my thumb; this is the result. A little sanding, a little polishing,...

My general M.O. is to postpone doing what I don't like, but today I thought I'd reverse that sort of thinking. I didn't really want to rework pit sills, but I simply cannot abide with their not being flush, so I intend to fix it. Small pieces are being added (sill runs uphill, towards nose), and once thoroughly dry, will be sanded flush, minor details added back, and repainted. At the same time, I'm covering up some gaps around aft bulkhead, using what Sheperd Paine referred to as "creative gizmology".
