The front wheel bay was glued to the bottom of the cockpit tub and then the whole thing was glued in place into the front fuselage halves that was glued together. Everything but the seats was glued in place.
The intake fans got a black oil wash.
The wings was connected, aligning the cogs.
Putty was applied to the fuselage seams.
Stabilizers was connected and put in place in the main body.
Then it was time to do the same with the wings, which took a bit of adjustment to fit in place.
Then the upper fuselage half was glued in place.
It wasm’t entirely easy to get the seams even, and they’ll need some work with putty and sanding to look right.
The exhaust parts was painted black.
The front fuselage needed some more putty as well as some parts for the intakes and air brakes.
The sander starter set I ordered arrived yesterday.
Maybe no bearing on this build more than that I started using some of them. I really liked the skinny ones as they made it easier to sand areas where the larger ones wouldn’t fit.
Some of the exhaust parts got a cote of steel and here’s a pic of the parts I’m working with at the moment, that needs to be done before I can progress further with the build.
Some putty was added to the fuselage seams.
I guess it’ll need more than that to look good. Working with the seams is a bit hard as the stabilizers and wings are in the way. I just hope I can avoid breaking anything!
