Today I worked on the emp fairing, getting it cut down, shaped and drilled into place. I'm pretty much sticking to the plans here. Lots of people complain about the fit of this thing, but I don't think mine came out half bad. Maybe I just got lucky, 'cause I know it's not skill. :-)
And here's a view from the front. If you look closely you can see a faint blue Sharpie line which represents the centerline of the fuselage. The fairing is obviously a little offset (due to the offset vertical stabilizer). I'm trying to decide if I'm going to trim the forward 'curve' back to be centered on the fuselage. Oh well, fugetaboutit...I can do that after I'm flying if it annoys me that much. For now I'll forgo putting a screw in the forward top part (many people leave it out).
