This kit is a real educational experience- my first DF, gluing stuff to glass, and now the Bristol paper inlet ducting. That was yesterday's task.

Before cutting the aft ducts out of the Bristol paper, I made a couple out of printer paper. Good thing, because of the RC Lander fan issues, the aft ducts needed to be skinnier and longer at the rear. I got a lot of practice with the printer paper ones, and the actual duct work was uneventful.

Next, I'm going to build those parts of the tail section that will allow the glass exhaust nozzle to be mounted, so I can go ahead and do the plastic funnel that attaches to it and the fan unit while the fuse is unsheeted and open.

After that I'll do the side sheeting so I can construct the wing mounts, as I can't wait to see what this bird looks like sitting on it's landing gear.
