    ok - a slight starboard wing shim was needed but it looks good - the glue should be cured in a few hours.

    belly pan has been built up and the first layer of spackle applied...


    I wonder if I'll have this Jug finished before we have one to fly in MSFS ?

    the belly pan is well on the way to smooothness - but now she also has 100% more dorsal fin..because that nasty adverse yaw was in need of an answer..





    the first image was the initial look to see if I wanted to add it - it was a bit large..

    the second image is the trimmed down fin because I decided I like it on there too much, so she's glued up now.

    once I get to laying in the spackle and finessing the fairings around the tail feathers and wings we'll be ready for primer -
    We're actually getting there fellers and fellettes

    Look like AH has won the challenge by finishing their Jug first - even though theirs is a Razorback.

    couple of ideas for paint IF I can make the natural metal finish look right - otherwise it'll be a camo job.

    now with 100% more anti-glare paint on it - still need to add the thin black stripes to the wide yeller ones and paint the lower
    fuselage with the stainless reinforcements and vents.
    Callie Graphics is doing the artwork and says I should have the sheets by next Friday..including ALL of the stencils and labels in black.

    Then it'll be time to try my hand at laying on the panel lines - then a final semi-gloss clear coat to bring it all together.
    Long way to go yet

    for some reason Imgur is not saving the resizing edits - been trying for an hour. If these are too large I'll just remove them - let me know

    most of the panel lines are done - paint is done.

    She needs decals, final cockpit and canopy assemblies, and the clear coat
