F&T Peter your triple-seven is really look'in fantastic!, I couldn't do a better job myself! & the gear trucks look scale & perfect as does everything else, you also may want to give Vynl covering a look-see, Spyro mastered it with his KLM Windrider 737.

You have a winner here Peter!

More progress over the week!

I finished covering the wing and built the ailerons outer flaps and "tried" making something similar to the fowler flaps (it'll have to do as I don't need a mechanical nightmare in my wings) oh well its the best I can do for now...

also the changesun 90MM edfs showed up monday they look sooooo sweeet, I only wish that they were just a tad bigger in diameter so I don't have to make my nacceles so fat to get it to look like the part. It shouldn't be too bad though These fans are from the X-flight combo with the 1600kv motor

thanks DD, I'll be sure to check out the vinyl covering although i'm wayyy impressed with the coffie filter paper covering. I just have to find a suitable primer to cover it in that wont attack the WBPU, the last one I tried on my test model started softening it up...

That fan looks like the real thing. There was a photo of the real engine a few posts back (or was it in the other thread...)

I HATE this part soooooo much, Hours of endless madness of turning the stupid hand drill with this thing glued to a plywood plate watching it flab around while I try to turn a cube of foam into this round thing. Its not even done yet... and I still have the other side to do

talk about ground clearance too I got real lucky it sits just about where it should.

I would but they don't exist I broke them off by constantly bumping into everything! I'll give you some when I rebuild them.
