I'll do a clean up Carl but I don't intend spending too long on the joints because most of them won't be visible from neither the inside nor outside, this is a "skeleton" view:

A chance to start sanding back the excess plastic on the fuselage, it's important to keep the pressure even when sanding to get a good join which needs as little filler as possible:

I've been thinking a lot about when and how to cut out all the glasswork along the cabin sides: would leaving it till later help the structural strength of the fuselage, do I cut out the whole strip from the door to the cockpit then add uprights, or cut out individual window spaces?  I've decided on the former because I think I can add a backing strip first of all then a thinner one flush with the fuselage face so that I can drop the glazing into it, if that makes sense?

Seeing how much window framing there is and how thin a lot of them are, I think I would cut them out as a single strip and then lightly scribe and paint on the frames from the outside while using strip styrene on the inside for a more 3 dimensional effect. This way, it's a single piece rather than many individual ones.

Bravo Mozart

I have this kit and I totally admire your approach to the tubing structure. I may shift my method. The cowl fairings (early cowl) seem to me to be all different sizes. I picked out one that looked right and made resin copies. I will send you a set if you like.

Cheers Andy. The good news is there are few rivets but replicating the wooden lattice structure of the wing underneath the fabric covering will be interesting. I have a method in mind which I'm going to trial on the rudder but there are alternatives.....watch this space!
