Yup! I've been motoring through this build. Having lots of fun too! The gear seems to be working out well so far.

More of the right wing panel

I managed to get the rest of the sub-leading edge installed on the right wing panel. I also managed to get a few pictures of the right wing panel.

Enjoy!

Thanks! And how have you been doing on the V-173? Didn't you want me to cut some parts for you?

Well.. I have been out of town the past 2 weeks for work, so I haven't messed with it due to that. I do have a few parts i would love for you to cut for me, i just need to find the time to separate them into smaller pieces to fit your cutting dimensions.

The left wing panel...

Well I've started working on the left wing panel. The right panel isn't done but I like to try to stagger the work on each wing so they both get finish about the same time.

This thing is progressing pretty quickly.

Enjoy!

A couple of center section pics

I thought I'd post a couple of addition pictures of the center section. Sitting on top of the blue laser cutter seems to provide good contrast. I think the pictures pretty much speak for themselves.

Enjoy!
