thanks Chris
will make a note of that
does the main spar still taper from the wing join (12mm-6mm) or does that start from 13 as well ?
thanks again

It has to be said Mick, the MO2a canopies are the most complicated canopies I've ever had to make (and then you have to paint them)...

hi Chris
i know what you mean, managed the front section and rear section - just a cannot get the middle to fit at all, either to small too big or wrong curve
it’s a lovely plane but just loosing the will to finish it ....
hopefully will get the enthusiasm back soon, as love to build but seem to be doing everything 3/4 times
OH the joys of modelling ..... lol

Can you post a pic of the part that doesn't fit next to the place it's supposed to fit?
