Wings block has been reduced in size using my hand planner. I also used the planner for the fuselage. All blocks have been marked for further shaping.

Don't forget to visit the group build site and the photo index. I keep adding photos but can easily miss some. I ask that you all ahve a look to see if their builds are featured there.

Not very much. Nothing worth posting. Once I finish the Christmas gift model(s) I'll switch back to the Halifax models. I also have three P-51's which require painting and have also been on the back burner so I'll run all 6 through the painting process at the same time.

Engine nacelles bored. Engine pylon slots were created on side of nacelles by drilling to the appropriate depth followed by chiseling the side of the holes to form the appropriately sized mortise. Vertical stabilizers had mortises cut using a laminate trimmer with a 1/4" bit. However, these could also have been carved out using chisels. Due to the construction of the tail assembly, I want to apply a belt and braces approach to the joint between the horizontal and vertical stabilizers by creating a shallow tight fitting mortise and tenon joint which will also be doweled.

Key components have been rough shaped. A generous amount of excess material was left on the vertical stabilizers for later sanding in order to compensate for any discrepancies in the angle of the routed mortises.
