Well the innards are all finished and fitted and the fuselage is still a good fit on testing  :thumbsup: Not normally the case with a resin cockpit tub. I've also trimmed and test fitted the vacform canopy and that would appear to be a decent fit as well. If the wings are then it's a really nice, and simple, kit for its age (indeed any age if I'm honest  :thumbsup:)

Fuselage is together and it was a good fit, closed nicely around the cockpit  :thumbsup: Will need a little p.s.r. but not much at all.

I now have a complete airframe and p.s.r. is about to commence. Will need a bit more on the wing root compared to the fuselage seam, but nothing to drastic.

First round of p.s.r. complete. Will need a second all over, possibly a third on one of the wing roots.

Also got the vacform canopy all masked up and trimmed. Carefully did it as they only provide one with the kit.
