I am in the process of building my first SR-71 Blackbird. I was doing everything I could to make it perfect. Painstakingly sanding and resanding, sanding sealer, sanding, sanding sealer, sanding. Being very careful that fins are on straight, etc. I wanted this bird to be beautiful, and fly really well too. So I'm putting the shroud on, and it goes on fairly well, a few imperfections, but not bad at all. I glue the last corner of the shroud down, and put the nosecone on. There is a huge, glaring, hideous gap where the shroud meets the nosecone!!! I screwed up!! Ahhhh! Anyone else have this problem? If so, any hints on how to do it better next time. Because there will be a next time, believe you me.
