Here is an update on the hatshelf hatch cover.
Before the cover is painted and mounted in the fuselage, I needed to decide where and what to do with the radio speaker.
The radio I plan to buy has a radio speaker box, but the size could have created an access problem near the batteries and with push rod articulation.
With a little modification to the outside of the speaker-box, I was able to create mounting point on the case face.

It has been an interesting journey to get this far in the project.
The left side of the cockpit showed some stress ware in the glass where the airbrake handle was. I sanded down the inside and prepped the surface to lay in a couple of plys of E-120 fiberglass.
The areas that were not intended to be painted were masked off with painters tape.
Then nose interior primed.
The finish is more glossy than satin.
I dropped in the seatpan to see if the masked areas were visible.
