Bit more done.I routed some more out of the servo pockets,after belatedly realising I hadn't left enough clearance to open the clevis's.Then fitted a hard point for a locating dowel.First made up a shaped frame using the wing bed,and cut it out to act as a template.Fixed the block in place with some micro balloons in the mix.The dowel will have to be loose,pushed in from the front.Once everything is in place the wing will sit fairly close between canopy and fin.
I've left the block proud of the upper surface so it can act as a core for a fairing extending over the canopy former.
Got myself another new toy.Maybe it's because I can't grip as tight as I used to be able,particularly small stuff,I've been having problems with Exacto blades working loose.So got myself a Swann Morton knife.The blades,which have a longer edge than the Exacto,just click into the frame.I find the flat handle easier to hold and to keep a square cut line with.
