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.

helo again I started to work on the doors and I got TF inteor kit the kit it's not the best but with mod's I think it will work at least I have scale sizes . when I started to build this kit I knew it was going to be costly so I thought I would use all the parts that came with the kit insted of buying after market like cowls landing gear that saves $250 right off the bat. But I can see why the others chose to go that way I'am not working with a big budget but I know it has coast $700 so far and I do'nt have a engine yet or any covering mat. or paint so if you are thinking about building a SR-9 take that in to consideration.when I get to the end of this build I will list all expences the one thing I will most likly up grade later is my recever.If you build the cowl you want app tips and a second par of hands if posable I did mine 3AM so I did not have help but it would have been nice so far this kit has been fun but been thankful for build logs esp.twinwarbird he did a good job and posted alot of picts that all for now.
