Very pretty Des!

I guess, as with Wingnuts, everything these days is computer controlled design and so is the manufacturing process- so there's basically no error! (until I get my hands on it of course!)

Looking forward to see how you rig it in this scale Des - something that generally steers me clear of smaller scale...

A master class in model building. I am in awe of your "rusty" skills.

Well....

assuming the designer driving the CAD system didn't make any mistakes, had the right info, made the correct compromises in creating a kit from the drawings of a full sized aeroplane

And then assuming that the design can actually be made, can be made without distorting in the process, can be made consistently, doesn't get damaged in handling

Apart from that, no errors

Crisp and clean. As usual from your workbench, Des.

The fuselage is now ready to be closed up, I sprayed the internals with a coat of satin clear just to seal everything, the seat belt is the kit supplied PE item. The third photo shows the fuselage sides assembled but not glued, they are an extremely good fit.

Great job Des!
I think the petrol tank should be more like zinc coated steel or machined aluminium based on what you can see in Windsock. 
Nevertheless, keep up your fantastic work.
Best regards

I've just caught up with this one, Des, and it really is right up there with your usual quality of work!

Glad to hear Adrienne is getting back to health.

Despite,
Just a little bit late on discovering this beautiful  project.  The scale may be smaller but not your amazing Master Level Skill and talent. Well Done my friend.
