I land in NYC, 1 week today.... another 2 weeks after that before meandering down the Cali coast...... We wanted it cold for some winter activity.....you have to be careful what you wish for.

A new F-20 will warm me up !

It's not too late. I haven't cut them yet. I can still do them square.


Here's what yours look like. Pretty much what I was gonna do.
will i will make you some doors ,but if the customer want wheel doors they should be cut from the fuse.i can always make extra doors for the guys but it will be extra.i have not yet tried to make them sequence with servo power ,not much room in there cause thats where my esc is
on the full scale the wheel doors shut on the main gear doors ...so you would have to clearance them for the main gear doors.

OK, I saw it.
I don't see much room for a servo under the thrust tube to close the wheel (inboard) doors easily. Just the strut doors is good for me. I'm gonna make them round for now, then trim the upper wheel as required when I get the strut doors.
The bottom of the wheel well will stay round and reduce drag.


wheel well will ......say THAT 3 times fast

The outboard side of the wheel well, on the fuse. Where some of the strut door will go.
Sorry, I left out word!

Here's the lastest from today. She's approx 47" long.

For reference:
4" longer than a Habu 2
2" longer than a SAPAC L-39

If ever a plane looked like its namesake...it really looks like a Tigershark amongst a school of makerals....or Habus.

The 32 is only 2 inches longer but sure looks more portly in comparison.

Not the 32, J. The Habu 2 (foamy)
.................................................. ........
Got the wheel well cut out. I'll determine the final shape when I get the strut doors.
Still needs a lttle camber adjustment, but it's good for now.
