Hawker Seahawk for PSS - final bits of woodwork

The fin has now been clad, the elevator linkage soldered up an in place, and the exhaust fairings completed.  Quite close now for some more glass - as usual for me the whole bottom in one piece, then the fin, then the top.  

I've still to cut the ailerons from stock, as well as the elevators and rudder, but they don't take long at all, and will take longer to glass than shape.

AUW currently 1lb 9ozs, and I think the target will be another pound and a bit on top of that. If she ends up at 3lb, that'll be 19oz sq ft, which isn't too bad at all really.
