PROGRESS! :-tri

I have totally pushed the YB to the back of the bench (literally) but felt pity for it last night. I assembled the left wing halves and prepared them for filling and sanding. I also did a final fit check of the flap. The remaining issues with the wings are to fill/sand/prime the seams, add the scoops permanently to the nacelle tops, fit the engines, mounts and cowlings, fix the landing light bays and re-scribe the panel lines.

It never leaves the back of the workbench.........

Every so often I do some small thing to the wings--I have not felt inspired to again work on the interior structure of the aft fuselage, however. Once I finish some of the other smaller projects the Fortress will get more attention, I reckon. It's good to have no deadline whatsoever for this build.

Just so it doesn't feel neglected I applied some filler to the seams on the left wing of the YB today. The project still lives.......

Thanks, Daniel. It's back to the rear of the workbench again now, at least for a while. I just don't have that enthusiasm for the bomber that I need to really make progress on it. I need to focus on the aft fuselage when my desire to work on this returns.

I mentioned this airplane on the B-25 thread so here is a photo of the further "progress". Really, really, really boring sanding, filling, sanding, filling etc. on the wings and soon I'll start on the aft fuselage interior structure again. There are a couple of other things on the workbench that need to either get finished or go to hibernation mode.
