Week 70  This week we get the veneer for the fuselage sides and cockpit surround

The bits we received

And what we did with them

Quite simply follow the instructions.  The tip about using masking tape to keep the cockpit template in shape is a good one.

The holes were cut out with a sharp knife.  They are actually a little on the large side, so you make prefer to make them a bit smaller, to give a snugger fit on the air inlet pipes.

I haven't cut out the cockpit cover yet.  I'll leave this until I need it as it looks quite fragile.
