As much as i like seeing the internal structure thought it time to start getting some covering on.
First i layed some depron on and she seemed flat, none of those nice curves you see from photos. After pinning some 1.5mm carbon rods to helping me identify location of the curves i discovered that the 'humps' than make the shape for the turbine ducts were either none existent or in the wrong place. Little bit of modifying and i had them were they were needed.
After adding some balsa strings to aid skin fixing, two panels were added just on the inside of boons. then center peice added alway to the rear with some over hang for trimming. Last, distictive duct skins.
