Glacial progress. Much head scratching, good set of plans and metres of masking tape have bought me to here.
Jumpei Temma's plans printed up to 1/32nd.

Tchau 4 now.

Yes, I realise the centre hole for the prop is off .

I think it's just catching the light a bit weird.
I cut templates to match those on the plan, then put a straight edge on the top.
The flat "may" be a little long, but I'll let it cure a while and revisit when the sanding fatigue passes.
Thanks for your input.

So if anyone sees Marty Mcfly and Doc Brown, if you could ask them to head back and talk to the draughtsmen at NAA?

My message would be, lovely aircraft, now put away the french curves for cowling work. Straight lines will work too!
