Its looking fine actually - you'd be surprised at how many small issues seem to mar many a model during construction but get lost in the overall effect once its finished and which don't effect its flying performance at all.

I tend to use the glue-stick and watered-down PVA method these days to attach tissue, but the dope and thinners method does at least give you the flexibility of correcting any issues.

Re the prop-bearing, I'd just keep it as simple as possible.  If the KP adjustable bearing will fit then go with that, else just bore and glue in a plain one at estimated basic angles for down- and side-thrusts and be prepared to use 1/64 shims for any fine adjustments.

Thank you for the replies.

If you shrank with water, more water won't help

That is great to know, saves a lot of frustration.

It is not bad enough to cut it out, so I ‘ll leave it alone.

For the motor mount I’ll go the simple route,
adittional trust shimming should be easy enough,
it would just be a matter of adding more 0,5 mm magnets to the nose.
