The story so far, I'm calling this a fun build and simply building it off the cuff.

I had problems with the PE. The wings have to be absolutely perfect or the PE will bow. The only way I could get them to fit was to cut off the lower attachment tab, glue the top in place, and then add a drop of CA to the lower end of the piece and let it set where it touches the bottom wing

Thanks for the heads up, I'll let you know how it goes 👍
