    been really busy but I desided to go ahead and start a build as well. Its a RWD 25 that I printed out some time ago and it has just been sitting there in my junk box until now. I started with the cockpit.

    Thank you both for the encouraging words. I did more work to the fuselage.

    Heres the fuselage. Note that I did mess up with the fit of the back end. I must of filed one of the formers too thin, causing a warped look. It was a real disapointment but I might as well continue.

    I pulled off the rear end of the fusalage again and got a better result on the next try. Now the entire back end is done. Next would be the wings and landing gear.

    Started the wing. This modle doesn't include tabs, so things are a little tricky for me, especially the fact that the formers need to be in a fixated position so tight that it wrinkles the skin. But heres the progress. Next will be the ailerons and landing gear.
