Hey Raipe,
Very cool looking plane you have there, sweet!

I gotta throw in one other project also. Been working on this occasionally, still needs a lot of fiddling.

Starting to really like this CAD thing

You can if you want, or even a little brace from that former to the next, but there's really not too much pressure or forces on the cowl once it's on that the former can't handle (unless it hits the ground ). Take a look at some other plane kits, most of them just screw the cowl on at the rear. But if you want, go for it...

OK, here's a few pics that I never did get to post for the stringers & notches (because of my files getting corrupted from a power outage and having to re-do them), a little late since your already past that point, but at least you'll have them for future reference.

And a couple for Paul too.
