Nice work so far! :thumbsup: The scheme looks pretty cool.

I'm afraid you've got the front landing gear leg too far forward, though. As far as I know, the Dragon instruction are a bit unclear in that regard. >>HERE'S<< how it should look.
Cheers,

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

All the more reason to build them with the gear up next time  :banghead:  Thanks for the heads up man.  I looked a million and one photos of bugs while building it and I still missed it ugh....

Well done! Those Dragon kits are a real pain with the smaller parts being arranged so it's easier to cut them in half than get them off the sprue..  :banghead:

Can't wait to see a closeup of the full line-up.
