Work's prevented me from getting in much building, but heer's a quick update to show I haven't been entirely idle.
I've taken a break from the engine and cockpit to check the overall fit of the main airframe parts. To be honest, it's something I usually do before starting a build properly, particularly with any kit that's produced without the benefits of full mainstream production resources.
I've only taped the fuselage together, because I'm obviously still working on the interior, but I glued the wings the other day and they went together without any hassle:
The first attempt at joining evreything together showed a nasty gap:
Looking inside revealed the culprits: a couple of ejection pin marks that need to be removed:
With those out of the way, everything went together quite neatly, but you may find you need to add small spacers to ensure the airfoil of the roots and wings match:
I've only positioned spacers very roughly here to demonstrate the principle, but it's enough to show the final fit will be fine:
Now I can be confident the wings and fuselage will fit together, I'll get back to the interior and engine.
All the best
