Well, I've sort of been keeping track of these things in the chapters where they most appropriately go, but I've decided to organize it a little better. From now on I'll post changes I make to the plane in this section. My goal is to describe the change, why I changed it and the results.
Since completing the upholstery in July of 2004 I considered the plane "done" but there were still a few details still left undone. For instance the prop spinner still needed to be installed, the nose gear doors are still not on and the main gear fairings were not yet completed. Well the spinners now on and the main gear fairings are on, but the nose gear doors still remain undone. Some day I'll get around to doing something about that!
