    I printed the skin on 80 g/m2 paper to do a test build. The fit is correct (I worked quickly so it looks ugly, but a patient modeler would do better).
    Definitely I will have to redesign the nose. It's perfect on rhino, but impossible to glue correctly in the real world :evil:

    With the help of Nobi, I managed to understand how to color the kit, so I've begun a new build.
    Changed the formers a bit, so that the whole thing is stronger.

    Nobi has been helping me with a few (actually, a lot) of problems. But I am either too thick headed for what he shows me to sink in, or the old saying, "You can't teach an old dog new tricks" is true. Maybe its both. Glad Nobi was able to put you on the right track. The subject looks to be an interesting one.

    Well, the test build of the auxiliary unit is finished...Result: it is possible to build it :lol:
    I've begun to work on the main part - the plane itself. I hope to post pics soon.
