I haven't had a lot of time to make progress on the MLAS lately, but I've gotten a bit done.
After it getting soaked, the nose cone shoulder didn't fit quite right - no matter how I sanded it, it wouldn't slide smoothly. So I took it apart a bit, cut a slit in the cardboard shoulder, and glued it back together, so it's about 1mm smaller in diameter.
That millimeter looks to be just enough. I hope to have the whole thing ready for painting (again...) in a few days, for a flight at CATO on the 21st.
