C17 fuselage assembly

I tried to post this a few times from the mobile app, but it didn't want to play ball.  Oh well, here it is.  First test assembly of tailplane / fin / rear fus / front fus out in the garden.  Can't be arsed to mow the lawn yet (I usually don't bother till after Easter) so it's a bit untidy I'm afraid.


I'm quite happy with the weight at this point, so blocking-out will start on the nose section shortly.  Carbon joiner tube is on it's way, then I will lay up some sheaths for the fuselage sections.  The first wing panel is in the press with its veneer on this morning, so I hope that looks good by the time I get home tonight.  Spar boxes next!
