O.K., here's the next group of photos. Progress is slowly being made. A few minutes with 400 grit sandpaper cleans up the main gear openings. There's a lot of ejector pins that need to be removed. Abnormally, they're all raised instead of slightly recessed. Good old fashioned wood spring clothespins and MicroMark Same Stuff (basically Ambroid ProWeld) help install the gear well inserts. Note that the gear wells are nowhere near accurate, but I'm not going to rebuild them. If I did, I couldn't use the SAC metal gear my client sent me. One outer wing panel glued and clamped. In order to keep the lower wing panel aligned when the center section is added, a piece of sprue in the proper location prevents that. With the help of clamps and more clamps, we're making progress. As it stands right now, the two horizontals are going to wind up causing the least problems in this build....which is none! That's it for this installment. More soon.
