Leroy, you should try your hand at building a full scale version of this!
It too would be a a work of art!

Ed that would be a project for sure and a fun plane to own. I have never owned a plane but floan many of the older ones including the Baby Ace EAA plane which I did the major work on in Aircraft School and a couple of my uncles creations, also EAA planes. Those were the good old days and they are long gone.

May be part of the reason I like to alter an RC plane, I like the creating part of it.

As with all builds at some point they must come to a end and I think I got a good one here. I still have an instrument pannel to build and thats it for this one. After tomorrow the engine will be pulled for break in, at this point the bird is ready to fly, just set the throws and the normal check list stuff. Looking foward to get her airborn.

These will probably be the last pictures, taken in the sun it shows the true color better than shop lights.

Like to thank all who followed along with all the very nice comments and you in the shadows, hope you got something out of the build..

I think I'm going to cry That is one gorgeous airplane. The colors looks very good together and fit the style of the airplane perfectly. I love the shot of the seat and headrest. The rivets show nicely in that shot also.

SUPERB JOB

Good luck on the maiden!

Ken

PS... Are you sure you are done? There has to be something left to do

Thank you pooyman and Nergall, the plane weighs under 17 lbs., should fly great with the DLE 35RA engine.

Ken that is one nice statement, thank you.

There is 3 things left to do, paint the pilot, make the instrument pannel and break in the engine, all else is done.

Tonight was the first showing at the club meeting, never saw so many make a fuss over an airplane, to say the least it was a smash hit. I feel a bit humble right now from all the praise. every one wanted to know when will I fly it, soon I said and the weather is here.

Excuses, Excuses......: D

Your time will come. It's been windy here almost every day, or rain, or cold. I don't think spring will ever come. I for one will be waiting for the maiden even if it takes weeks.
