Well almost, the only thing left now is the pushrods for the ailerons and flaps and the blue for the roundels and tail flash . She's all balanced and fitted out .

Whilst looking through some photo's the other evening I came across this photo I'd forgotten about it . I'm pretty sure it was taken by 1 of the visiting US pilots to last years Manilla Slope Fest ,It may have Been Jim (Pismo) I suspect but possible by Matin. Oh well either or but its a good shot of 2 of my babies awaiting flight time, which last years event did not happen due to low wind speeds but maybe this year

Last night I hinged the last flap on the Hurricane ,so all that remains is to connect the aileron and flap servos up and finish the markings and we are ready to fly . But as usual we have moved into the winter season now and the local inland slope is not suited to big PSS models so unless I jag a day at Otford then September will be its maiden flight at the Manilla Slope Fest,along with the Fouga and the faithful old Bearcat will get airtime again .

Whilst I'm waiting for a few items to arrive for the Hurricane I put pencil to paper and started drawing up the next Project. A CAC Boomerang is next on the list.
First mistake was that the 3 views I'm using are all not the same scale
but managed to scale each of them to get the same result

RG1410 going to be used on this girl

Update: corrected fuse shape this afternoon ,all bulkheads now drawn .
so returning my attention to the final stages of the hurricane . Then the next build will begin
