Week 31  This week we get the struts, plus a the aileron trailing edges and cockpit bulkhead

The bits we received

And what we did with them

I have just slotted the struts into the fittings for the moment.  Two reasons for this.  Firstly, I will want to try and match a red paint to the colour of whatever Hachette give us to cover the model, and secondly, I want to have a little bit of latitude to make any fine adjustments to the struts after the wings have been fitted in place.

Hot tip of the week

Try to look forward in the project to see where you might have problems, or where you can make life easier for yourself by leaving things until other parts have been assembled.
