One panel a day, should be ready for the next millenium.
Have ordered more powerfull 6x Cell fans to improve the Javalin which will enable me to use the removed 4x Cell fans in the Scimitar.

Looking great!

Your 'coke bottle' comment and excellent results caught my eye. Very nice! Attached pics offer another way to do this with rolled depron or fanfold. The construction technique relies on monocoque principles for strength.

Keep up the pics - they're a great inspiration!

PS: not wanting to clutter your thread. Just wanted to share thoughts from a fellow scratchbuilder on replicating the challenging coke-bottle fuses of jets designed in the 50's and 60's. I'll remove them if you'd prefer - just say the word!
