So while Jeff and his gang of three are working I've been at the bench.
Can't sand that pesky area inside the exhaust.
So I cut some .25mm styrene to fit and glued it in.
Filed and sanded the top of the vent smooth.
And thinned all the thickness out of the openings.
Much better.

Framing is done for the steps out front.
Tuesday is the big pour!!!! Woohoo.
So this morning, I did some cleanup on the fuselage.
Seams and such. Then the wings and horiz stabs went on.
Cleaned up all the joins and misfits, all good, easy peasy.
It's primed, light grey. So you might be wondering........
"why the big sticks that resemble a tongue"?
Well, the bomb/gas tank mounting on the center line under this thing fits inna slot.
Well, that slot has access to the Inside, and yes, one of the two pieces dropped inside!
Needs a big hole to fall thru. hence, the bigass slot. Convenient for something to hold
during painting! And now your awondering why the cockpit masking is flat?
That's because the headrest sticks up where it can be KNOCKED off see!!!!!!!!
