Don't drop that on the floor.  The carpet monster will never give it back.
Continuing to be an unbelievable build.

Sometimes, when I'm doing a particularly fiddly bit of assembly with very small components; I just say the hell with it and lie down on the floor and do it there.  I fought the carpet monster.. and I won.   ;D

Here's a bit more.  I was able to add the undercarriage at last and test fitted the wheels. the inside faces need a wash of something before I stick them on permanently.
I discovered a hidden setting on my printer that gets rid of the aliasing around the fuselage emblem. Too late for this one though... Ho hum. I'll have to live with it unfortunately.
