That's unfortunate. Does your wife have a large family in Russia? Tell your Daughter happy birthday from us!

I was able to finish the fuse framing and started on the bulkheads, I will need to brace them back to straight and square before I attempt to assemble the sides together. Also not sure what I'm going to do with the firewall as it too is slightly warped... Not sure if it is worth fooling with, I can get a new piece from a local lumber supplier that has all kinds of this type of special woods.

Had a fairly good day today, I managed to put a real hurting onto the fusakage! Its looking pretty dang cool now and now all I need to do is make up all the hardware for the cables and build the landing gear. Then the top center section of the wings.
