I think I can call PSR done on the fuselage.  Last action was to drill three holes.  Two for windows for the "inside" crew and one for a dome on the roof (I know there is a proper name for these but it escapes me right now).

Now, onto the wings and tails and engines and undercarriage.  It strikes me that I could have been working on these while PSRing the fuselage...

Generally, "blister" or, sometimes, "bubble" because it is more hemispherical than most "blisters", which tend to be ovoid or tear-drop in shape.

On older aircraft, when navigation was still done by sextant and star-sights, it was called an "astrodome" and it was mostly used by the navigator.
I try to learn from the mistakes of others who take my advice.

Ah, yes, forgot about that one.

I have read Saint-Exupéry's accounts of his flights - that's how he rolled.  ;)

Yes, Astrodome.  That's it.  Thanks.

I hope it's a long one...……..  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Does it have a prayer, though?  :wacko:

As it turned out, no.
Examination of the underside join revealed too much of a step up from the wing to the root fairing so it once again has no wings.
I have split the inner join of both wings and put in some evergreen sheet packing to increase the depth of the wings to remove the step.
Wing attachment should recommence tomorrow.

Wings!

...and tails!

No control surfaces yet.  But tails!
