Final job apart from the aerial is the fillet piece to the front of the wing.

Using the system explained by Andy Blackburn on the JP, I taped some rough sandpaper to the bottom of the wing, cut my piece of 1/4" to width and sanded away until it was the right shape. I have now glued it to the wing with the wing fitted.

The pilot and exhausts arrived, and I had a bit of a surprise because:-

  1. I had prepared a deeper cockpit for the pilot than Phil had ordered, but no matter, I had to make a higher platform. It is a difficult fit which I had to attempt twice but eventually accomplished sort of in view of the twisted angle of 1/4 square supports.
  2. The exhausts were deeper than I thought. At first I thought they would fit on the surface but then looked at the plan and realised they glue into slots, so I had to cut some out, I used my balsa chisel and knife. It was easier than I feared.

The pilot comes with grey undercoat but I went for a white undercoat, which I will use for the whole model in view of my intended desert colour scheme. Sand will cover better over white.
