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
mick

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?
