Why is patience a virtue, why can't hurry the f**k up be a virtue?

After moving house and all that it entails, I'm really happy to get back to the bench once more. Hardest part of returning to the workbench was I never finished the main under carriage a month ago and picking it up again yesterday mean't having to reacquaint myself with the tangled madness of hydraulic and electrical lines. Got stuck in yesterday and I've finished most of the detailing on the main undercarriage legs. Just a few grease points and cable strap tension what-knots to add and I'm back to the airframe. :woohoo:

Nice work Terry!
You really get a sense of the tremendous strength needed in landing gear for fast-jet naval aviation, don't you with the figure alongside?
