Well here is the Sky Chief all covered. I still need to drill and bush the nose block and carve the prop. I know Texaco is not exactly Jimmie Allen's fuel but that company did have a grade of gasoline called "Sky Chief" and I like the logo. So much so, that I made a decal of it for the tail. The rest of the airplane is covered in Texaco colors with the Texaco Star on the wings and my usual Jimmie wings on the side fuselage. Big balsa wheels are very soft and light. Did not put it on the scale yet as I will wait until I have the prop installed. Seems like it weighs less than the Bluebird with the same wing area. The gentle sweep of the wing is different than the other JAs I built. The fuselage is relatively short for the span, will hold a lot less rubber than the Bluebird. These pics are pretty poor and I will get some better shots by my photographer wife outside tomorrow.
