At this stage I ran into a few problems. This plane is what I call a tail dragger. I had to remove the front display board and fill the nose up with fast grab tacky glue with some bb's embedded. The only problem was finding those bb.s in the mess I accumulated over the past several years,why is it always in the last place you look and you find something,arrrrr!! Anyway, I also found that the inner rear landing gear doors were not made to fit correctly,they should be closed up,according to my reference photos when the aircraft is at rest, I made them almost closed so they look acceptable. I installed the antennas, burner can, and a few other odds and ends to complete this stage. I'm still going to have to install the lower fuel tank,and the canopies. Here are a few more pics from today.
