Old and new parts getting ready to come together as one.
Here are the original Tactic servos with the speed control nearly in place. Note the pushrod leading up to the Du-Bro nosewheel. I may make a better pushrod soon.
I've never heard of "Suppomodel" motors, but hey, this ain't bad for twenty simolians. The E-flite mounting setup has been trimmed way back to clear the cowl.
The fuselage is nearly complete at this point. No problem getting the cowl to fit.
The wing mocked in place less the struts. Almost done.
Told you it was pretty. Here's the finished product right after the maiden flight at the Coachella Valley Radio Control Club. The snow-covered peak in the upper right corner is 8516' Mount San Jacinto west of Palm Springs.
Except for the prop and nosewheel, the Cessna looks stock. Doesn't fly stock, though.
