Yes and I put a bowman ring in it and after the Cubs and Cousins this weekend I will mount it to my 1/4 scale Pawnee and finish the break in and get it running solid befor I put it on the jug.

Getting a little more done on the cowl.
I am trying to get the cowl done so I can paint it, if I can get that done by tomorrow (unlikely with work), I will have Amy do the artwork this weekend.



The rivets hide the tape seams.

It dawned on me this morning that if I remove the slead canopy brace I can make my canopy work, so I covered it and will mount it next.

If it speeds up the build, works for me.

Now that our first event is over and the next event knocking on the door.
I am going as fast as I can, work is furious too so we will see. Five weeks to get her done and flight tested. There will be one of the bigest gathering of giant B-17 in central Texas this year at the Ken White memorial warbird.
