Move to the back of the cabin, please
Moving rearward, the cabin gets fitted out.
The first row of seats go in, tempting to use CA as they are only connected at those very small points of the front legs, but I have instead drilled the holes slightly larger and used solvent.
And then added in the facing row.
The cabin walls go on next, secured in place with tape, and the roof taped on as well to aid alignment.
And a chance to preview and “snag” the build, in this case the seat backs that, rather than hanging from the cabin walls, sit oddly away from it. That will be fixed later.
A check from the front looks fine.
and the joints are well aligned
Apart from the temporarily fitted roof.
With the sidewalls in place the seats are eased back, and attached to them with CA, this is why the legs were glued in with solvent, to allow them to flex.
The process is repeated on the opposite side.
And a last chance to view the cabin
from a couple of angles
Before the roof is glued into place.
Meanwhile the glazing is fitted into the outer fuselage sections.
Everything can set solidly before I try and build up the fuselage proper.
