Alright guys I continue to make parts and modify the ones I already have made I'm taking my time here, I want everything just right be for any soldering is done.
I have had a few people ask to see how this will work? I have to admit it's hard to tell what is going on here unless you have made this be for and even then it may be hard to see where I'm going w/ this. I have taken some photos w/ the parts in the down and then retracted but it's just the music wire, I had to make some clearance on the mounting block by beveling it and I've also made a grove all the way around the main crank music wire for the set screw to have a good place to grip once set. have a look the photos tell it better than I can, and then if you have any questions just bring them on.

Hi Bruce, I been active on the build. But I must look after the wife and my other interests to, like gym, programming and travelling. So I have completed the rudder, tailplane and started on the fuselage. Have taken photos and post the relevant ones below. With the fuselage I always wanted to cover with planking and taper to the tail. Big mistake but I am stuck with it. Have looked at your recent posts and amazed at the progress keep up the good work, no magnificence work. An inspiration to all of us.

YES Roddie I never saw the appeal of doing all that PLANKING so much gluing and time fitting each piece and the extra weight of the glue,that's why I showed how I did mine with sheets wet w/ alcohol.

And yes you still have to cut angles in them but there's way less gluing involved.

Oh and I understand about family first, I'm a single parent myself and raised two kids on my own after my wife passed eight years ago.

Your work looks really good and it looks like you've been really steady after it to have gotten this far this fast.

Keep up the good work and I look forward to your next post,

Bruce

Thanks bwigger notice the JACK OF ALL MASTER OF NONE I also use to do some silver smithing and was also an engraver for a short while, I worked with most materials in one way or another I also use to make custom acrylic tables w/ brass bases and I just ended up a cabinetmaker once I got married and had kids.

I had a guy on RCSB tell me I shouldn't make the grove all the way around the main crank wire and it had been bothering me ever since, the reason I did that was so I would have one less thing to line up when soldering SO I WENT BACK and REMADE the main wire and this time just put a small semi round spot on the crank for the set screw. other than that I haven't really done much just thinking maybe to much thinking?

Looks good Bruce - I'm still lurking. Have started a new job and haven't flown mine again, but soon will have it up in the air again.

This thread has a great video of the NZ Mossie - http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...7#post23048465

Thanks for the photos Rupert man that is tight and no comfort can't imagine how they were able to handle long missions and you couldn't be a big chap to even fit in the cockpit.

Sort of wild that a 152 has a bigger cockpit than a 400 mph 2 seat WWII fighter bomber with over 3400hp. :-)

She's built for speed not comfort! That pic makes it look a lot larger than it really is!
