To put it bluntly,
this thing gave me the hemorrhoidal flare up from start to finish
but I started so i'll damn well finish.

To cut a long story short,
badly fitting doors so gear down only,
ditto canopy so open only,
lotsa putty, glue, tape, clamps, filing, sanding, scribing
and a bloody partridge in a pear tree!...


not much fun but in the end,
one big Raptor so can't grumble too much.
