It's an epidemic ! Tom's building the earliest version,the monoprep. I have not been this excited over a model in years..Everything 'jelled' at the same time. I stumbled on a disassembled full scale,at the same time a kit became available.

Do you guys ever build something and then have seconds thoughts about it ?

I did, with the cabin sides. I removed the 1/4 balsa pieces, and cut new parts from 1/4 ply, and glued them to the fusege sides. While the glue was drying, I made templates and cut out the fuselage cabin formers, using cartoon wood.

I then cut the rear fuselage spreaders, from 1/4 square stock.

Starting at the front, I joined the fuselage halves.

Second helpings


I try to plan ahead and not have do-overs, but they still happen...Yeah, Tom,I've changed things on occasion.
I try to leave the engineering alone, but I have replaced heavy for light, or the other way, if I think it's necessary.

The more I thought about, the more I realized what the designer had in mind.

It really wasn't a big deal to cut out and install the new parts. I'm glad that I took the time to do it.

Not the last time that I looked. LOL

I've been spending 2-3 hours a day in the shop. This isn't my first trip around the block. Progress may seem fast, but it really isn't

I failed the Evelyn Wood speed building class.

Sorry, Trey.

You're not very late. I'm only a week into the build.
