Default 6 Foot Skydiver Build

Well here it goes, It had to be done and I'm going to do it. This is the Sky1 being scribed, Not much point in posting to much of this part of the build as its the same as the first one (Wing in pic) Finish the scribing and the start the Diver section.

I pity the swans at your park. They must be totally neurotic by now.

As it turned out I couldn't be bothered with waiting for the tubes and engines so with careful measuring I started on the interface, As with all big projects they all start with a small step and this is no different. The front interface will be a complete part with top and bottom so there is no ambiguity about size spacing etc. The rest of the sub body will be a top and a bottom hull with a stern end part. Pretty much like the 5 footer.

Incredible build going on, I have followed this for a while and im blown away with the amount of detail and work gone into the project at this time, the more I see the more I want to scratch build myself.
