This week the cabin was detailed with cargo and the fuselage halves were put together. Due to the gaps and uneven seams it required a lot of putty. The resin nose was also attached. During the time while the putty was curing I assembled the engines as well as built up the main landing gear bays. Next week I will be building the wings and then re-scribing panel lines and rivets along the areas that were corrected with putty.
