..... Progress continues. I have finished the body of the plane & so far I'm reasonably happy with it. I'll take photos and post them shortly.
Progress is slow, writing the pattern at the same time as crocheting makes things move at a little slower pace than normal.
I plan to move on to trying to create the wings tonight, I am still not sure of the best approach ... I think I'll start by trying to make the wing from the tip and see how that goes. I can always try a different angle if things go wrong.
