Build Day 9

With Bobby away in Kimberley, the show must go on.

Simon did a brilliant job constructing the chair which I primed with Grey primer.

Chair with primer coat

Bruce cut back the gunports that were extending into the cockpit space whilst I cut back the filler on the tail.

Tail sanded back

Bruce trimmed the clear canopy and Simon trimmed the supplied canopy interior so we could get a sense of how the "scale" canopy would look once it gets closer to completion. Here is a mock of the progress so far.

And from the side...

Times flies when you're having fun and so the end of another build night drew to a close.
