Work on the LaGG-3 is being suspended indefinitely.
I managed to slice my thumb with a knife while doing dishes over the weekend, and it’s made me a bit clumsy at the bench. While test-fitting one of the cockpit side windows, I slipped and dropped it.
Of course, since I had just cleaned the garage floor earlier in the day, the part immediately entered into a wormhole and vanished. I searched for an hour, with no luck.
I’m sure it will turn up eventually, so for now, the LaGG-3 is going back into the box to await the day the part is found.
