after some other unsucsessfull attempts at the frame, i drew it with illustrator and cut it out of black vinyl that had been shot with grey. so the outside is grey and the inside is black. these are not the final versions, still some assymetry there

i cant work on the pit because i am still waiting on the seats, so i started to remove the rudder from the fin. there is a pretty prominent crease between the two on the real thing. its hard to get a lean cut on the joined parts, i should have done this before assembling the tail

didnt have much mojo lately (but who told me to build a kit where i have to scratch 97% of the parts....)

some detail on the tail: stiffeners and the bosses for the position lights



cracking job :) I know what you mean about mojo, I sometimes think I should just build a kit for an easy life, but then if I find myself getting bogged down or pi$$ed off I just move onto scratching something interesting or different on the airframe and it sparks me back up again


keep on carrying on, you are doing an outstanding job of this

i toyed with the idea of doing a quick "trainig day" build, but stopping in the middle of this may make it even harder to finish it, so i didnt...

what slows me a little is that the parts i mastered and Harold cast for me still didnt make it across the pond (not his fault, they were shipped weeks ago)

without the seats i cant start the cockpit, without the wheels no landinggear and without prop blades, i cant do the spinners.

oh well, maybe they will show up today

thanx for all the likes
