First test fit of the truss with the fuselage halves and the lower wing. The result - very satisfactory. No trace of the dreaded anhedral, no need to sand the mating surfaces. Only some delicate flash removed on the fuselage and wing edges. Very, very promising. Not that I expected anything else...

Wow, that is good news all round. When I built the test model, the fit wasn't this good. Richard made some changes to the final kit as a result of the test build and it's clear they really paid off.

Looking forward to seeing more of  your build.

It is great to see that a Limited run Resin kit can be made to such a great degree of accuracy and precision. !
