    More pictures will be up today. I will see if the, instruction update member, of the crew will compile them into that PDF when they, (The Pictures), are complete. I can also supply Him with the build pictures, for the other models on the Moon Port Project.

    No problem everyone, I can incorporate the photos into the PDF fairly easily.
    It would most likely be when we have a full set of build photos, start to finish.
    It looks like we have 10 already.

    Thanks Leo!

    Hope this comes out the way You would like it to, (Final Publish that is, (LOL)). The part 44 will need to call out (2) corner cuts. I found this problem when I just tried to fit it into the interior bulkhead. I will republish it, and the nav windows in the morning.

    See attached progress pictures for the instru. panel placement.
