Attention 750 scratch builders. There are some drawing errors that I want to point out to save you the grief of making usless parts. Four of them are in the baggage panels: F-5-4, F-5-5, F-6-2, and F-6-3. The projected views are backwards. There is a good illustration of these parts on FX-1 you can check before you bend. One other is in the fwd fuse F-11-6 which is also backwards. page FA-4 shows which way to bend it.

Caleb, when I was making the parts I didn't always know where it went or how it was oriented in the assembly. I simply made them to the drawings, and for the most part that worked. I think the arrows are a good idea to help orient the part in the assembly but the three view drawing should have the projected view to properly represent the part. By the way, I think the plans are exceptional and I am very pleased how everything is coming together.

I don't see what is backwards or incorrect. Are you looking at the arrows and labels?
