What a hull…

I can’t believe it took the whole day to get these pylons framed up and their angles set correctly on all axis. What a haul. But they are perfectly set in the bx slots.

Now I can sheet over them and around the boxes. This makes installing the nacelles on the actual model model plug and play.

BTW the painters tape on the pylons was used to round the LE and TE without damaging the flat part. Later the vents and the lighted windows location will be scribed in. But I had to have the pylons in there slots to check it all against the saucer to make sure that when the nacelles go on they are in their correct positions.

Tomorrow I’ll finish the sheeting.
