I've been having fun with the E-flite Jenny. I stripped it of all it's decals and re- painted it with Model Master Antique White. It mostly went together as stock, but I re-drilled all the wing struts so that it could be wired more scale. Then I simulated the control wires and covered the landing gear with wood and stained them as close as I could. Sorry about the goofy E-flite wheels, but I have a set of 1 7/8" William Brothers antique wheels coming from Tower Hobbies, but they haven't gotten here yet and I need to use them for photos...

The Control wires don't really work. I laid in all the rigging close to the hinge line to give it the illusion it was connected, but the control surfaces still work independent of the rigging. After spending all that time working on the wings, I felt it only proper to 'go all the way'.

Lettering and Curtiss logo done on the computer, printed out on clear label paper and sprayed with clear lacquer to preserve the ink.

Can't wait to maiden if the wind will just drop below hurricane strength long enough...
