    the enhancements to the site are looking sharp so far. Good Work on both the wings and the site.

    Your site was great and is even better now. Thanks for putting that together. I have been visiting quite often. :thumbsup :thumbsup

    Question: How did you drill the engines straight? I've been toying with this but I'm afraid of drilling and having it break through off center.

    Thanks.

    Well I hate to admit this but one of them isnt. It was the last one I did and I just eyeballed it instead of measuring like I did for the other three. I measured the height of the piece and through some wizzy wig math figured out where the center of the engine needed to be.

    After I got one where I felt it was straight I did two others. The last one I just looked at side by side with another. Once it was all together and too late to change I noticed one engine was off kilter.

    Sad thing is, when I look at the model that is all I see. Grrrrrrr

    All I see is a fantastic piece of work that I'd be incredibly proud of. I've followed your progress from the start and I must say that I've really enjoyed the WIP updates and really appreciate the effort and time that you spent to document your progress on the project.

    Kudos.
