OCD Sunday - Fuselage, wings and tail are all glued.  Now checking symmetry - everything perpendicular, balanced and still in scale!

Daily progress update.  Decided to tackle the open cockpit excavation (much like my recent root canal Lips Sealed) with flex-shaft dental drill.




Very few suitable Japanese pilot figures in 28mm so these Bob Murch fellows will soon suffer the dental tool resculpting ordeal!

Uggh!  I've spent hours getting the pontoon support framework positioned where everything just about lines up~then I dropped it to the carpeted floor. Soft enough fall but it still shattered!   Its now re-glued but I'm rethinking the framework into wire rather than glued wood strips.  Good thing there are three more weeks.

It looks beautiful but I wonder if you are right about the wire. The wood looks a bit fragile. May be best to bring out the solder gun.

Really a thing of beauty. Another option is to strenthen the joins (Green Stuff or similar).

Decided to stick to plan A and use wood undercarriage.  Propeller is done but will put that on last.  Very happy with how it is turning out
