instrument panle was 3D printed. a simple layout of the time. speed, altitude and a Cosmin Variometer
the panel was test fitted, A frame to support the panel is included in the NC parts set
A cardboard temple was cut to get the plywood planking of the wing pylon. In the end I will make it in two parts. A balsa support for this planking was added at the top, contour to be trimmed later to match the underside of the wing.
The first 5 plywood strips are fitted to the top nose ares . The completes the RH side.

The Kite looks stunning (especially the dash)!! You make it all look so easy to do; when I imagine myself sanding the nose to shape, I can only think about sanding to deep and have to start all over.. :oops:
