Started glassing things now front fuse is done ailerons are done the pace is picking up , however sort of lost a little interest in posting in the build thread and the blog ,as its only the same old thing over and over and the build thread for both the Bearcat and the Fouga sort of give a complete instruction on my build methods so I may just post the final photo's once its complete .
Thanks for your interest though

To be able to use my choosen colour scheme I needed to add the tropical air filter to the Hurricane, I had some kevlar and glass tube which I cut down the centre line and used some balsa stock to reshape and carve the air filter. I think it came out pretty close.

Its getting close to glassing and then paint now also finally have a new power source for the Hot wire so the old batteries can now leave the bench
