Hi Ken: Thanks for the kind words. I have been playing around with a lathe for a few years now, always learning new techniques, 100% self taught.
I spent 40 yrs of my life as a welder, if I had to do it over again, I'd be a machinist - hehe!! There's something about spinning metals that grabs at my soul.
Having the Mossy assembled for a couple of days has given a a chance to do final touches. The vertical stab was intended to be glued directly to the sheeting, I decided to add 2 3/16 dowel pins to strengthen the joint. I need to finsh up the hatch and get it sheeted so I can fill in wing gaps.
I'm trying to decide whether I should run a counter rotation prop, a 16/10/3 blade Master or just run with standards. I know the real Mossy's used props sppinning both the same. Doug B
