Funny name, neat little plane

As a youngster I saw many an ad for a little 1/2A C/L racer called Dil-Bod. Why the name, I have no idea, but, as Shakespeare wrote, "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet." Although tiny at 14" span, its proportions were just about perfect. Now, fifty+ years later, I discovered that the AMA museum has a Dil-Bod kit. I obtained a copy of the instruction sheet, and set about recreating a Dil-Bod of my own

This is the little bird for which I need a small spinner, as I posted in an earlier thread. One's on its way from MECOA.

Geoff,

That is a cute little machine. Looks like it would be a nice flying plane, all a bit quickly...

Still waiting for MECOA to send a spinner, but I've gotten a bit more done in the meantime. No fuel tank available, so I'll just build afiberglass one in place.

Still no spinner, so I cut a 1 1/8" disc for a pattern and started carving the cowl.
