Default RE: Building the Mick Reeves Hawker Hunter

I've now installed more of the fuselage formers (omitting the engine mount one for now until the choice of engine is made, to allow for varying mounts), framed up the elevators & stabs, and have started working with the proskin covering. I elected to start with the smallest parts first, building the elevators and then the stabs, to get some experience with using this stuff before moving on to cover the wings.

Here are a few more pics showing some of the latest progress, including one wing laden down with weights while the glue holding the proskin covering sets:
