I decided to build the TC33 because I was building a series of Gloster manufactured aircraft.  The TC33 is the only 4 engined Gloster aircraft, so I thought my collection had to have one.  I could have chosen an easier subject.
In real life it was not a successful aircraft, it was built to fill a specification for a bomber/transport.  Although it flew ok it did not have good take-off characteristics, so it was not adopted.
I have shown the assembly of the wings to fuselage stage.  The wings themselves are complex enough, they are thin, they have to have dihedral built in, they also have to have sweep back.  To complicate matters even more the lower wings are shoulder mounted with anhedral at the attachment point and dihedral on the outer panels, they are also mounted on a round fuselage.
I think I will go back to my Meteors.
