Project R: pt 6

Update on the Archer.

I got some work done with the lower half and have some minor progress for the center torso to show. 

The CT pics are below.  I am still on the fence over the cockpit canopy.  I like it, and yet, I don't.  I like the plate-glass look to it, where it follows angles rather than being a smooth curve.  To the left, it may just be too big.  I dunno.  I think I'll order a 1/48 F-16 or F-4 canopy and see how they work.  Or, I could just try to do a heat pull of thin clear plastic and try that.  If I had a vac-former, that'd help, but I don't so I have to be creative.

Also, I added a quick "this is where I am so far" video.
