Nothing defines true friendship quite like a well-aimed blow below the belt. :D I answered the phone earlier and was greeted by my best mate saying "Oh, you're not dead yet then..." I think I'd actually be genuinely worried that the doctors weren't telling me something if my friends suddenly started expressing serious concern! :lol:

Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

It's going to be very interesting trying to build the things for real because all the parts are supposed to be integral with the outer skins, but you can't make the skins without the internal structure to base them on. It's a bit like trying to build a house starting with the roof. We've so far built all the internals on a complex wooden tool and we're going to have to erect them with a few rivets here and there so we can then use them to get the skins right.
