Such a nice cockpit but...

I did build the cockpit but when it came to fitting it, it was way too wide so I had to almost destroy it to get the basic bits in. In fact, all you can see is the seat and a bit of the floor, so that is what I fitted.

Next stop - fit the wings - not so easy or fast.

Here is what you have to contend with when you fit the undercarriage bays onto the lower wing.
This narrow gap is what is left between the two bays. If you skip back to the cockpit - or see below:
Now tell me - how is that going to fit between the two bays - simple answer, it isn't!

This is what I had to do to make it fit - not pretty but it works - and you can't see it once the fuelage is glued up!

Now it all goes together. More pics tomorrow unless I throw it against the wall - grin.
