Looks great Rabidrue, still six weeks to go on the build off so one more lock in should do it!

Thanks guys,I built the interplane struts this morning before work.They will sit in place with no clamps so they must be the right shape,now I just need to work out the mounts to hold them.I need to test drive something to the LHS for some 1/8" ply for the mounts,so I better get working.

Most of the pre covering nick kaks are done,just the glassing of the wing centers to go.One more lock in should have the bird covered.

In spite of the easter weekend I was able to get the base color on the top wing and one aileron hinged.I should get the other aileron hinged and a start of the trim colors in the morning before work.

Good work rabidrue. 19 days - more than enough time to finish it

Personally I would have chosen this scheme
