    Started fleshing out the starboard side and played around with my phone's panoramic settings. Really gives one an idea of how much room I don't have.

    If you are going to do it, might as well do it big! :D Thanks mate!

    Cheers mate. It's currently 5.5 metres long, with another 2.9 metres to go.

    I got a lot more skinning done today and started trimming and shaping it a bit. It's so bloody BOORRRIIINNNGGG! So, I started putting the floor and interior walls in the cockpit to keep things interesting. A mate came over and asked me to modify his wheelchair, so that broke up the afternoon nicely for me. :D Cheerin' :D

    Been doing some work in the cockpit fitting the instrument panels. Planning with cardboard, then transferring to ply once it's right.

    I couldn't find the unit under the port-side RCS joystick, nor the piper fuel mixture lever and knob, so I went ahead and made them.

    That darned red light!

    Can't afford to buy it? FINE THEN! I'll MAKE it. Scaled using a screenshot of the original prop and a know item that I have, (red switch). Turned on the lathe from polycarbonate rod, details melted in with soldering iron, collar is the lid off my wood glue bottle. Drilled out for a globe. I'll paint it with a red permanent marker.
