Just an update that the Struts are roughed in. I'll finish sand and glass them When I go to glass the fuse. I want to do all the glassing at once.
I sat the pilot in there to check for room. There is plenty. I have to do the interior next so I can finish the outside of the fuse so I can glass it.
Now I have to do more research on what the interior is supposed to look like.

Started on the interior. Joe likes where I put the seat.
Built my first ever gauge. I think it's a Fuel Gauge. Now I have to find out where it goes.

note: The interior kit is not a kit. It has a lot of missing parts. Looking at the directions tell you the parts that are not included. Still a kit is supposed to have the parts to put an interior together. As of now I don't recommend the kit. The plus is that it has a few hard to make parts in it. I can put an interior together from this but I will probably have to make a few trips to the LHS.

I don’t know Tom, but I think Joe seems a little, shall we say, stiff. I really think a mustache would help. Or maybe a cushion. lol

He does look a little stiff. Once I put the helmet, goggles and a scarf on. His stiffness will be cured.

Finished up the cockpit this morning. The Pilot didn't come with Goggles. I'm pretty sure I can't make one so I'll have to find one. Any suggestions?

Like the way it turned out. Now I can finish sheeting above the Cockpit and then I sand the fuse and start Glassing.

I think he needs Goggles to hide the creepy eyes.
