beginning of the fuse.

This is the beginning of the fuse. and how I am going about the assembly.....with only a few sheets of lazer cut parts and plans I am having to sort out the beginning , middle , and ending steps....I am sure somewhere down the line I will find I have done something out of a so called order....I am keeping notes as I go along and hope to have better reports as I get to a completed frame work....

Do you mind if I put pictures of my "Toon-E" Beta build in this thread, or would you prefer that I start my own thread?

More fuse.

I haven't had much time today but did manage a little forward progress on the fuse. To me it appears to be upside down but that is not the case.....here is a pic....

CRCM.....I have been kicking around some ideas for a color scheme....my son is trying to convince me to do it in orange and blue.....but what does he know ?...he is only 21.....I am thinking of a yellow and purple with silver trim for dividing lines....but it is too early to come to a conclusion as of yet.....I have found with many models they never come out even close to what I had first in mind .......Can't wait to see more beta builds on this one....Tom
