  The mark  towards the bottom of the left one is the "sellotape". I didn't update the margin settings before I printed it.
  The right sheet turned out great

  Managed to get home for Anzac Day and have attached the upper wing.
  I'm experimenting with rigging. The "blue tac" on the upper wing is not scale.
  The undercarriage is held on by blue tac for effect.
  Pretty happy with the result so far.

  Cheers

 Further progress.
 Wing rigging completed. Elevator controls completed. Using ezi thread.
 Fuel tank pipe added.
 Rudder controls won't be done till I summon the courage to apply the rudder decals and
 attach to airframe.
 Need to make up a pulley for the upper wing aileron control cable and a fairing for the lower wing control run.
 Concurrent with this is to make a pitot for the starboard strut.
 Picture to follow
 
 Cheers

 Gordon

 Just plodding along with the time I get available.
 One step at a time.
 As a consequence all I've done for the X plane cook up is mull over a few plans
 and scratch my head.
 Hopefully get a picture up on Monday/Tuesday my time.
 Cheers

 Picture shows wing rigging complete. Fuel pipe added. Needs a bit of adjustment.
 Managed to get one rudder decal on OK.
 The  undercarriage is still not attached. Just in place for picture.
 Onwards.

  This shows the underside.
  For Clear Doped Linen  I've used white primer, Acrylic "Naples Yellow" and a light top coat and touch up with
 Vallejo "Model Color"  Ice Yellow. Seemed to work.

  Cheers

Great effect on the linen lower surfaces. This will be a magnificent model.
