Barry, would it sooth you if I left a couple of artistically placed wood shavings in my photos in future?
Brian. :D :D :D

I have a razor plane, I can make shavings too. I just cannot clear them up as fast as Brian.

The Wookie will remain quite and aloof as ever.

Life is starting to return to normal for me so I felt I had better get back to the Dart 17 build. The easy start was to finish off the cockpit and canopy. The canopy and frame are now painted in the same colours I used for my 1:3.5 version. I manufactured an instrument panel and binnacle and that has been glued to the frame after painting. You may notice that I have also made a very simple seat and the side fittings in the fuselage which will be painted later.
By the way, if you look closely in the background you can see all the spars etc which are now ready to begin the wing build.
Brian. :) :) :)

Oh, Sorry Barry, I forgot to leave a couple of wood shavings in the pictures. :D :D :D
