Slow progress is better than no progress. As you can see in the picture, the dome and the skin are now in place and I started cutting and pasting the edges of the arm access hole.
The dome came out great. Better than I imagined. I used construction adhesive to attach the skin to the tube and then wrapped it with plastic wrap to firmly hold the skin in place while the adhesive dried. I use the plastic wrap on a roll that you buy in packaging places. As you wrap things, it tightens up. I used this stuff when I glued my B9 legs and it worked like a charm.
As you can see in the picture there's a spot on the top of the picture where the body dips a little. Unfortunately that's where a shoulder support bar is mounted. I don't think there is much I can do about that and not sure how much will show once I mount the nose and rivets. None of my projects are perfect so I'm not going to sweat a small detail like that yet.
