Well, that's one (still needs it fibreglass skin, has a thin* balsa layer at the minute to form the cloth over and it's allowed me to foam fill the leading and trailing edges for dent resistance)....

On to the always growing list of 'additional shit we shouldn't touch until it's finished but we're probably going to do anyway' - the front mudguard mountings tubes are going, they were originally left separate to the damper mounts so no damage occurred to the suspension if a mudguard got ripped off, but we've worked out a smaller, neater way to do it which gets that curved tube out of the equation. Should be lighter, look a lot neater and gets the tube out of the way of the wing endplates.

Oh yes, you can also see she's sporting some shiny new nerf rails down the sides, to go with the new front bumper that's in progress.
Good for bouncing off trees, rocks and mowing down small children.

*So thin you can see the ribs through it, saves at least 10 vital grams of weight! ;)
