    OOO yeah!

    Thanks Gearz. There's not many things I like better than being able to say "I told you so" :twisted: , so I'll really appreciate any opportunities you provide.

    On the serious side I'm still way behind DOC there. I'll actually be pasting that little nose panel section on tonight, then I can add the decorations and move on to the mid section. I've been suffering from the too-many-projects-on-the-go syndrome lately so I'll try to force myself to focus on this build for the next few days.

    Working on the LB arms now....I'll post some build pics tomorrow...BTW, does anyone mind that I'm posting sort if "step by step" build pics? It's just kinda fun for me to do, and I thought that it might help other builders work on it when it gets released...But I'll stop if it's annoying...let me know...I have tomorrow off (please don't forget to thank a vet tomorrow :) ) and will have all day to work on her, so I should be close to working on the engine module tomorrow! Can't wait!

    I'm a little leary about where exactly to place the stuts, Gearz. Do they go flush with the top and then flush with each end? That's where they were on the I guess that's where I'll stick 'em....

    Is it just me or does the overall design look like an ant on skis?

    I don't mean your design, I mean the one from the show.

    Yep .. flush with the ends and top..There's placement gfx on pages 6 and 7 of the AG..

    design note...

    one of the "MID LB ARMS" is missing a tab...

    LB's are attached, had some trouble getting all three points to attach on the starboard side, but due to build technique, not design....

    Oooops Panic attack ! If its not to late... I should have pointed out a potential nuisance with the engine ducting parts. Regardless of any modifications they will need, In my rush to forward it, I've left a bunch of tiny flaps on a majority of the ducting parts, = I should have removed them on the bitmaps..

    Sorry about that guys.!

    There's a tab missing on part #8 (upper "shoulder" part of engine module)
