What about the f-4 though
And yeah, there's all kinds of physics and junk behind it, I was just joking

All the rivet work now shows in the paint. Pretty cool.

The T-38 served her sentance in the garage and got out today. She made it back in the house. The paint job is cured and no longer has the strong paint smell.

Fan install is next on the to do list and hope to have that done by the end of next weekend..


P.S. Nice curvey pics there fellas...

WOW man, I tell ya this is a beautiful build and the rapid pace of how it has all come together is simply stunning So tell me, are you sold on fiber glassing now? You have crafted a working piece of industrial art beyond expectation for most anyone in a short span of time beyond comprehension

I'm thinking Ace in the Hole might have to be a destination event, I'd love to see these things fly. When is it again?

Rivets applied with a burnishing tool made out of small aluminum tube and an old screw driver handel. Can either be done with a soldering iron or just by hand. They are applied after glassing and the first coat of primer.

You must have a team of elves hiding there somewhere. Others have mentioned the speed at which this has been done. Very impressive.
