Well I finally finished assembling my SE5 today except for the rigging. I'll try to post some pics tomorrow. I was going to take a few more during construction but it so well by the book it would have simply been redundant.
One note, when attaching the interplane struts I used masking tape with paper on it (so the tape wouldn't pull up the paint) to hold the model (without the landing gear installed) down on the table. I slid braces (I used upside down saucers) under the bottom wing to keep them from moving while I put in the struts and to make sure the struts being glued in place didn't change the dihedral.
