In spite of the Turkey buzzards. I have been working


Back in number 676. I noted that the beveled ends on the flat top still need to be done. So far I have only done the one side. The reasons? I have big hands and don't feel confident in doing both sides at the same time. I am sure that while working on the second one, my first one would've been damaged. Also I have been working on my little surprise in the forward cabin area. Another thing that needs to be addressed was the means of holding the cabin in place. Putting the flat top on the forward salon wall necessitates lowering the forward cabin straight down. More on that later.
The attached picture shows one beveled edge on the forward salon wall / flat top.

Or help make an excuse why it failed.

I'd add some fuel to the fire, but am fully aware that Santa is watching.

The bevel on both sides of the flat top are now complete.
I have not forgotten the serving window, I would never deprive the cook.
Not wanting to spill my Capt. Morgan, I have not forgotten to put the edge on the flat top
I also did a mod to the cabin, so that the windshield fits over the flat top.

That looks very fine. I never noticed the bevel at the sides before. You have a sharp eye for the details. Good job OBW. Take a break and raise a toast to your work.

POPS, thanks for not adding any "fuel"to the fire. As you can see by the attached picture, a small sampling of the fuel available.
By the way, if Santa is just watching, send him here, I'll train him on chain saw use.
