thanks, Rob... stringers were included. As it stands the only thing i'll need to buy is the sheeting for this kit (and all the hardware need to make it fly  ;D )

after dealing with a plumbing emergency at home ... it was time to get back to building.

Not much done but did some test fitting of the wing ribs

BTW it's remarkably easy to install a toilet. It's the cleaning up.... it's a crappy job ;)

That looks great, Greg.

There's a lot of nice detail on those parts that will be covered up.  Still, it must make the build process more interesting.  I like the concept.

Thanks Rob.. I’m hoping some of the details show in the retract bay ... I know it will be hard to see when fly but I’ll know it’s there

Andy ... it was a poor attempt at a dad joke. Luckily there wasn’t solid waste to deal with just a cracked tank

well, the holidays are over and I'm back to work  :'(

... but I was able to sneak in some building after yesterdays new years fun fly (once I warmed up:) )

glued in the landing gear hardwood mounts and test fitted the stringers on the gun cannon.

next up is to pop into pinnacle and get some hardwood for the wing spars
