Thanks guys. Not much to show today . Spent the day getting the wheel well sealed and ready for paint as well as some other fine details.

The canopy was a near fit. I had to raise it with 0.010 shims . Going for the second round of Surfacer and sanding to make it fit better .

Wow, I've been following along and one of the things that impressed me the most was that canopy fit! What a Magnificent smooth job! Man, I gotta quit! I'm not worthy! :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

Thanks Mike , Bob , Dave . The grinding continues. No wonder you don't see these built all the time :pinch:

The nose pieces continue to be a bit of mystery I'm starting to think a number of teenagers created this thing during the summer months .

Event the parts tree drawing is missing numbers that are called out in the assembly diagram :rotf

Glad I have two noses for this build . The first needed a lot of buffing . Finally damaged it.

The second started cracking around the machine gun port and continued getting worse ( upper ).

.

Tried to var-form the dome but that did't work either , so I cut out the front windows and hope to reassemble enough parts to make it work.
