Default Another big chunk of work done.

A good session with the engine hanger; I thought it would be the most difficult section but I think the walkway cages were more challenging.

Default Some work from a week or two ago

Coming together now; getting heavier all the time and looking good if I say so myself.

I did move the passenger pod hangers; those were soldered in the wrong place! I also set about doing some quality control work.

I have also completed the soldering of the CM Hanger /Frame. The most fiddly bit of work yet - by a long way; the air was blue!

That's amazing work mate! I'm happy it is coming together, I'm looking forward to seeing the completed eagle.

After being away with work for 3 weekends and then having to make it up the following; yesterday I managed to do a bit on the Eagle. Borrowed a large bead / shot blaster and have thrown some etch prime at it.

Default In FDW

Bit of paint and test assemble.
Bit of reaction in the white paint - not sure, happened before on my passenger pods (http://www.eagletransporter.com/foru...d.php?t=159496).

All Halfords paint - I don't know, no big deal. I can fix it.
Pretty happy, looking good I think.
