Thanks Gordon. I still have a long way to go to match your skills and the skills of all the other members!! But maybe one day I'll get there.

Started to shape the back end of the fuselage. The tang at the front is held in the clamping vice to facilitate carving and shaping. Most of the shaping was performed using a trusty file.

Top of fuselage rough shaped and canopy outline penciled in.

Side of canopy shaved back using a chisel.

Canopy shape roughed out using a chisel, file and a little rough sandpaper.

The pilot must have had a crooked neck to fly this. I don't see any forward visibility through that top cylinder.
