Nice clean build! The trusswork (Warren?) looks great, but wasn't it terribly fiddly to build? Given any thought to the covering/design?

I see it going to be "turbine" power instead of IC

VERY nice looking build so far.

OK. It may work that way once you solve some engineering issues. John

Kimber isn't much of a talker but she sure is a builder, making good time and it looks great, just like most of your other builds.

Right now we are thinking blue and white.

It just takes a lot of time to do one like this.

Thanks for the comment.

I am only doing the sanding on this one, it is about eight steps
above my ability. Every thing on it has some taper.

Thanks.
