Landing light cutout work

Didn’t do a whole lot tonight, but I figured I’d at least get started on laying out the landing light holes. The left leading edge was already off anyway, so I started with that. I got as far as tracing the cutout on the skin and then wimped out; I couldn’t quite bring myself to cut into the skins tonight. Mostly I spent a lot of time reading and rereading the instructions, trying to fully understand the process.

Setting the plexi lens in place to verify the hole location:

I’m pretty sure this is right, but I’m not ready for the commitment of cutting quite yet:
