The cockpit area is at last finished and I am moving on.

However, there is a snag! The tail wheel assembly has gone MIA which prevents me putting both sides of the fuselage together. I am searching for it and have emailed ZM to see if there is a replacement Sprue L available for me to get hold of ASAP.

In the meantime, I can at least work on the right wing, including painting etc for which you can see in the photos, the fuel tanks and wing skin dry fitted. I do have the right wing root upper part to dry fit and then paint to make sure that everything fits with no gaps.

My tests with the clear varnishes have not worked out and no matter what I use I just cannot get a clear undistorted see through area! so I will stay with the frosted look!

Thanks, Morris.

After careful consideration and consultation with the instructions and dry fitted parts, I can, so long as I leave the tail assembly off carry on with the build as there is enough room and access to the rear compartment where the tailwheel fixes! :dance:

This also gives me the opportunity to work on some masks for the tail for the upper surface camouflage and tail design decal, which is quite large as well as the fuselage insignia etc.

more shortly, chaps!
