Well, about 12 hours later.....

And I'm here. Looks just about the same doesn't it. That's because stitching (getting it all nice and watertight) is like medieval torture. seriously 12 hours. I literally burst out in tears of joy and hugged my teacher when it finally worked. Maybe not the tears but I really did hug him. Anyway, the plane represents the 3d plastic printer's workable area (13.5" square) so my 27" piece is chopped in half to fit (It's pretty toighttt). Anyway, I'm gonna turn the blasted file in tomorrow for printing, hopefully my 12 hours was not in vain.
