Mike, fantastic job so far!! I like where this is going. =] I love the TLC in the cockpit. How much fun is that, RIGHT?! Shipwreck is right about the canopy. Nice save on that. Some times concessions need to be made out of functionality I realize so if I ever see something small some times I hesitate to speak up (is it always that big a deal kinda thing...). That's an easy fix though for this point and definitely worth addressing. =]
You may have mentioned it already, but who's plane are you building?
I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for this build.
