I have my tail finished and almost have the fuselage completed as well. I cannot afford to buy all the remaining kits to finish at one time so I need to split them up. Would there be any problem getting the finish kit next to get the fuselage on the gear and basically complete the fuselage and save the wings until last? Thanks for the input.

Wings took me longer so if you started them next it will give your checking account time to recover


Storage of an on wheels fuselage may become an issue if you have limited space. Wings, flaperons, slats, and tail sections can usually be hung out of the way. My two cents.


Go ahead.

Otherwise, you can't really move it arround.

I agree - get it on the gear. Makes it a "red letter day" and you can then easily move it around. If not on wheels, the fuselage will be just as subject to problems with storage and dings as the wings. 



Thanks for the info, going to order the finish kit and slats next that way it will be easier for me to move around the shop.

Good choice! Besides, it's much more realistic to sit in the fuselage on the gear and make airplane noises! LOL!
