Here is the access for the joystick. The belts will run up the trough
to the lift fan in the front.
The engine stand will be above this, and the belts will go to the front of the craft throughout this hole.
Here is how the lift duct is shaping up.
I am going to paint the craft yellow with a blue skirt. I know there are
other crafts on the internet with the same colour scheme, but we will never
meet. Also, these colours are readily available.
The yellow paint is 'marine paint', a polyurethane paint. There is a coat of 'plastic primer' underneath it. It is zylene based, and dries very fast.
I painted the attach strip, so I can attach the skirt before moving ahead.
Some neighbours helped me flip the craft, and set it upside down on the cockpit, so I could attach the skirt. I also finished attaching the bearing mounts in the lift duct, (the circular pieces in the middle of the duct).
