Aerial Flyer - lower hull construction 2
Further progress on the Flyer underside today. The tail plane mounting is more or less done, and the strut connecting it to the ventral deck house is halfway there.
It took a bit of work with basswood, the hot glue gun and a healthy dose of Aileen's Tacky glue to get the tail plane solid enough to work. I'm going to cover the main face of the strut with plastic card 'plank' panels to represent the liftwood/corbamite bars. Once this is done more plastic card will be used to laminate the underside, and I'll add trimming to the deck house to cover and reinforce the seams before I turn my attention to the top deck.
