Today was an all shop day, and it was a productive one. I clamped the body back together carefully. And of course filled some unwanted gaps, but less then I expected. It clamped together well, doing one side at a time just to make sure I was getting the best fit. Sanding was also needed to account for the displacement of material from the band saw blade when it was cut apart. I chose not to glue the roof on just for more simplicity when adding more interior components.
The seats were set in for test fitting and they fit just as planned.
I then began working on the cockpit and the abundance of controls and gages. I finished the collective lever and started the insturment dash. To make the dials on the dash I glued Beech veneer onto the walnut casing and proceeded to drill trough the veneer to reveal the walnut beneath it.
Thanks for taking a look,
