Week 51  This week we get frame number 5

The bits we received

And what we did with them

The first job is to move the holes in the cockpit bulkhead.  This is quite easily done with a small round file.  I haven't glued to bulkhead in place yet as I haven't decided what to do about painting.

Use the same process as before to glue the bulkhead in place.  I.e. Make the appropriate marks on the building board/jig, and mark the line on the strip of wood.  Apply glue and pegs, check it's all square, and leave to set.

I decided not to paint this bulkhead.  It would be cloth on the real aitcraft, so should probably be painted red.  However, as none of the other wooden parts are being painted, I decided to leave it as is.
