So, after a couple of rounds of PSR, the fuselage is in the following state;









More needs to be done before it's completely complete (landing gear wells, landing gear & the butt-end) & I can fit the wings & engines, which are what I'll start work on next.

Amazing PSR job on the fuselage nose!

Thanks, Frank! :)


I knew the look I wanted & I put more effort into getting the PSR right this time (still some faults but much better than my usual).

OK, so this is a fail for this GB. :(

This is where I got to:

Wings are just dry-fitted to the fuselage & the nacelles are just dry-fitted to the wings.














However, the build goes on! ;D

Looks like a bit of internal structural framing is required, then it's PSR time! (Oh, joy! ::) )

I really like the look of those engines with that amazing hull you put together!

Will be keeping an eye peeled for further updates!

Thanks heaps, BdB! :icon_alabanza:

Don't forget to follow the build as it continues in the Physical Models "Aero-space" forum: http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?topic=7092.15  :)
