Boeing 747SP – Update #6

Building the wing fairing section has been a little tedious with getting the right fit and shape, but I’ve taken a big step and sanded it down, closing in on the final shape and looking like the real thing. I’ve used filler again to help improve the fit with the fuselage by using the fuselage itself as a mould. The result so far is pleasing.

You will notice I have glued a strip of timber to either side of the fuselage. You will see why in my next update. Remember, this is my first build of this aircraft type and scale, so when I repeat the process for client orders, there will be much less filler. This process is called test and learn, with my learnings going back into build design improvements.
