Engines aligned via hair dryer.
Balance point discovered, and ready for drilling for the mounting bar.

Still need to smooth out the Neck hole fill a bit more.

Primed and ready for painting.

Not Shown: My accidentally drilling through the top of the saucer, for the mount. More use of Apoxy sculpt and white putty to cover the top of the metal post.

All progress has ground to halt whilst I attempt to find an SSRI/Antidepressant that doesn't give me insomnia (all night), make my chest hurt, or give me an emotional roller coaster.

I just started on Effexor. It's not without its side effects, but so far, I am feeling much better; like the clouds are starting to finally part.

Hang in there.

Btw, the build looks GREAT!!!

They started me with celexa and I saw a difference rather quickly. It will get better but may take a bit to get the right meds.

On celexa now. Second day. Chest isn't hurting as much (almost gone). And I managed around 7 hours of sleep. Anxiety is much much less.

Have you had a chance to work on it some more?

Many chances- yes. Actually had enough enthusiasm after getting back from hospital. Started working on it again the last couple of nights. :D
