Default airco DH-2 scratchbuild

first i'd like to thank everyone for there compliments and i have another batch of pics of the build progress.i started some of the grommet work on the sides. i did this by useing 1/64 ply as a stiffner and predrilled holes in the ply then i wrap and seal in solartex leaving a 1/4" tab. useing a soldering iron i then burn holes through the solartex where i predrilled and then set the brass eyelets in and then useing a tool i made i tap the reverse side and expand the eyelet to anchorit in place. i decided to keep everything in brass and not paint anything, it seems to be a nice change. i have about 75% of the cockpit detail done, a little more instrumentation and a few other things and will call it done. i also built a wicker seat it took about 12 hrs to design, cut and weave it. the seat cushion is in tan leather, all the leather work will match the seat. well that's all for now i'll keep you updated on the progress.
