got the skins on the landing gear and made the out rigers and came up with a way to install them using only one screw in each by using male and female brass tube on the bottom and the top fits like shown in the plans. the plane is still reasonably light so I will fiber glass the landing gear, fuse, doors, and hatches this will help for durabilty and make it easer to make it look like metal like the real thing is made out of. this will be a first for me I have never done fiber glass so if any body would like to offer up some tips I would be greatful.

after instaling the windsheild you have to blend it to the fus I chose to use epoxy w/ microballoons I have not used any bondo so far on this plane and very little balsa filler.If you are building this plane I would sugest taking tour time at this stage of the game.It took two aps. of epoxy the second very thin here are pics of the one half I have sanded so far.

finished my dummy radial and I am was glad I went with 1/6th scale it just fits in the cowl that way I do'nt have to chop up my nice cowl it may not be corect scale but it looks 10 times better than TF's and plenty of air will get to my engine williams bros makes a nice model but it did not come w/ an ignition harness so I had to make my own.time to start landing gear and canopy/wind sheild and mount cowling because I think fiberglass for the front cabin? still thinking about this does any body have any sugestions on this I would be intersted to hear them thanks

did some more details today or I should yesterday , I took time to make sure you could remove the back seat easily so you could get to servos also rear windos and all trim is removable for painting. I don't like the fab pannel I did on my door so I will redo this should get my dummy engine monday that is all for now.
