On this rainy sunday I came back to my workbench. After even more filling and sanding it is now time for gluing the major parts together. First I placed the window into the fuselage but later decided to remove it again. On the lower edge of the window you look at a prominent glued surface which didn´t turn out as I thought before. So I will paint both the edge on the fuselage and the lower edge of the window first and then place the clear part in place later. This will look much better.
The correct adjustment of the cockpit is a bit tricky. Modelcollect forgot to create a good guidance or parts to hold the cockpit proper in place. I attached it with very little glue and put the upper half of the fuselage on the lower one and then corrected the position of the cockpit bay. After carefully removing the upper fuselage again I applied a normal amount of glue. The fitting check shows a good result.
