    The fuselage had a small problem but I've corrected her and I've make the windows also.

    Not too much progress lately because I didn't had much time. But I will continue soon with the landing gear.

    Awesome!

    Interesting technique: what prog are you using for the design??? I did all my stuff through Metasequoia, so this one is foreign to me. :confused:
