All on and connected, feels good :
I removed the tail-wheel assembly early on, so I neatened up this area with balsa planking and filler :
Sanded smooth this afternoon. This will be glassed lightly before priming :
So with the hard remedial work done on the tail end, time to look at the nose. I have a long length of M12 studding running through the firewall that is secured with large washers and locknuts.
This then protrudes through the cowl space and out through the spinner's location, giving me somewhere to attach the spinner, and hold some lead right in the front of the aircraft :
This will then get shortened down to a sensible length for normal operation.
