First Cabin Fit

First fitting of the body halves. Of course they had to come off and on about a half dozen times to fine tune the cutouts around the body tubes. The powder coat on the body tubes got fairly scratched up in a few places before I had them all taped up to protect them, I’ll have to get some touch up paint of the same color.
The fit is pretty poor. I think my seatpan sits forward perhaps too much which makes the vertical holes on the sides impossible to line up on the left side without really deforming the seatpan. I may have to pull it all apart and redo the seat pan mounts so everything fits more cleanly. Darn. I thought this was going to be an easy bit.
Anyway, it really looks like a flying machine with the body attached and I had to strongly resist the urge to climb in, make airplane noises, and daydream. The frame came powder coated dark green. I had been thinking dark yellow for the body, but perhaps a very stark white would work with polished skids and blades and grey Zolotone on the interior. Too soon??
