Still plugging along. You can see I've made some progress. I put on the cabane struts with the aid of a very simple cardboard (from an Airfix box) and balsa jig to help with alignment. Worked just great. I think I'll also use it when I actually attached the top wing as well. I usually use the Mk. 1 Eyeball for these sorts of things, but the geometry of the cabane struts, while not Fokker D-VII-like, was still a little scary.
I'll put on the landing gear and start painting pretty soon. This is a nice little kit!
Cheers and thanks for looking.

Dan, the progress you make is really scary - are you God ?
Nice work, hard to believe this is a vac, it looks pretty good to me
