I'm with you Mark, those that can sculpt are a special breed.
Nice work, it certainly is looking "turkeyish"

Question about CG

I happen to have a TBM Avenger already built, with no plans with it. Could you please tell me where the CG is located?

I am planning to install a OS MAX 1.2 4C and it will fly (I hope) at Mexico City (7,200 feet high).

Regards,

The plans show the CG at 41/2" back from the leading edge of the wing.

I've got the the upper fuselage skin is now on. Still a bit of filling and sanding to do, but it's at a point now that I can begin the lower fuselage construction.

It's been a while since my last update. The TBM is slowly moving forward though not quite at the pace I'd like it to. The fuselage sheeting is in place and the fuse is nearly ready to start glassing. The wing and fuse where mated and the model has finally stood on it's own legs.

Just wanted you to know that I am still checking in on this build.
Looking good, but no new progress since April?

No recent progress. The fuselage has been glassed and is in the fill/sand stage. I'll pick up the build again in the fall.

Looks good, can't wait to see how it flies. We just had the CAF's Rocky Mountain wing's TBM-3a land at a local town celebration here at Delta, CO. It lands real slow and didn't use much runway. It is truly a BIG bird. Good luck.

Did any of you here than Skyshark have a IL2 Sturmovik coming to the market soon, 72" W/S I believe.

There is a thread on the website below, but you do need to be subscribed to see its content though:

Nice. Had that been available last year I'd probably be building it instead of the TBM.

How did you make room for your battery? What is the location on the plans? I am ordering the plane and want to be sure to take care of this ahead of time.

Also, how did you mount your motor?

Thanks so much-

Bob
