Now have the Zero cowl done with the panel lines and top coats.
Baffles for the engine half done.
Getting very close to flying. Test flight will be in the new year as we are away for the next two weeks.


I cant help myself just have to have toys and have just bought two 1/4 scale gokarts.
Now if it is to windy to fly, can use my boat, if the water is to rough for the boat , I can use the karts. Have to be able to cover all avenues of the hobby.
The hangers at work have very smooth concrete floors so they are going to be my race track.
At home , the street out side is very smooth road carpet so that will get used as well.

Time for an update on the Zero.Airframe all ready ,all radio in ,control surfaces all working,retracts working,motor bench run.
Cowl needs the panel lines and black paint.
I am making up the engine baffles at the moment so as to direct the air flow straight onto the cylinder head.
Need to airbrush the burns around the gun turrets
Do a final check on the CG ,and we are then ready to fly.
Getting excited now as this is really starting to look good .
