    The top section of the fairings is difficult. Each one I tried to attach in a different way and all the results varied. They are a very tight fit regardless. This particular step will take a lot of time and patience that is the best advice I have on this. The end result looks really good though.

    Well, if you like tiny pieces you will love this next section. Okay, now making and mounting the fairing support structure. The final pattern should look exactly as I have laid it out here.

    Now comes the fun part of more small tubes. If I haven't screwed up the lay out too badly, then these should all fit into place quite nicely. Once everything is in place, just do it again 3 more times and you should be mostly done with the thrust structure. Do be careful though, on the plans part number 30 the last one there is a bit of an error. For now just print out an extra and that should cover you for the rest of the build. thumbsup

    The amount of work, coupled with the amazing consistency is quite impressive. The engines all look alike, and that's a very good thing. Incredible actually. :)

    Thanks so much for all the positive feed back everyone. You guys are all keeping me motivated. The finishing touches are going into the thrust structure presently. More photos coming soon.

    Okay, almost there, some of the detailing parts are finished after this I start on the fins and then it should be done. But here are some pics to hold you over until then.

    Here is the last of them. All of the markings should be in the correct location and the fins are in the correct location as well.

    There were only two parts that I decided not to use as they would cover up the retro rockets. I did cut and fold them to show what they look like. These are parts 37 and 38.
