Week 96  This week we get the wheel axle tube.

The bits we received

And what we did with them

This brass part is kept until later.  I haven't fitted the control cables in the wing yet.  As I'm not covering the wing, there is no need to do this just yet.  It will be easier to do once the top wing is in place and I can run cables directly from the ailerons to the control column.  However, if you are covering your model then you do need to install the cables before covering the wing.

Hot tip of the week

Use the correct grade sandpaper.  Medium or rough for removing material, the more material to come off, the rougher the paper.  Smooth for giving a good finish.  Don't use smooth sandpaper when you have material to remove - it takes ages.... 
Use fresh sandpaper.  Worn sandpaper takes ages to remove material or give a good finish.
