Further progress



I know its on stilts..... that's to keep its belly off the cutting mat as I added glue to the rest of the fuselage joint and it needs to dry/set without glueing itself to the mat.

More to come, but not today  ;D

Just a little more added.

This time its the housing for the rocket exhaust and the tail hook.



Next step is filling then sanding of the fuselage before I even think about adding the items in the background of the picture.

hmm, you will probably need lots of filler gondor about the air intake. my model certainly did.

thanks trevor, I found that I didn't need much filler when I was adding the intake on my other SR-177, but who knows what this one has in store. The other SR-177 will quite happily wait untill this one is ready for painting.
