Part I

Below are some pics showing the cockpit construction. Except for the seat belt/harness the interior is OOB. Click on an image to see a larger version.

Part 2

Nothing fancy in this part. Shots of the engine and fuselage being assembled. I did find that with the clamps and careful gluing I was able to limit the need for filler in the fuselage seams. With the exception of one spot just behind the cockpit the top seam was finished just by scraping with a knife and then some sandpaper. The kind of seam work I like. On the bottom front you can see some clean-up will be needed around the access panels. My plan is to sand them off completely and then add new ones cut from styrene. Should be a lot easier then trying to clean-up around them.
