Did some fitting of the engine cowl on the Mustang. The gear mounts have set for the Hawg, so I grabbed a photo op, hmmm curious about the nose gear, as I did not do the initial trial and fit, it appears the nose gear is not going to work its present location, additionally if I move the nose gear up higher on the bulk head, that will make the nose sit even lower than it is. I presume so that once all the gear and batteries are installed that will settle the main springs a bit.

Well, had a great time at the track, managed not to lay the motorcycle down all day. JOY! Next trip to the track may be in May, but definitely will be in June, on the 30th.
Now back to modeling. Got some work done on the Mustang, the the engine firewall and mount is all done. Doing some light sanding and will start scaling up the panel lines for the wing and tail group. I owe Scott Raines aka "Scott Dog" big time, as usual he came through and helped me keep the project moving with my limited time to build. He did an immaculant job on the wing prep, gear doors, fuse join, and horizontal attachment.The fuse already has the panel lines, so I will be working on doing the rest of the planes panel lines.

Laid out the King cat to see what if anything needs to be done before I start in my Tuskegee Tribute paint scheme, then set it aside while I wait for the lottery to hit so I can buy the Titan SE I am going to power it with..

Got the main and nose gear hard mounts glued in the Hog as well, need two Titan SEs for this baby. Any sponsors out there?

Stay Tuned.

Dern rain,
well if it holds like this through the weekend, I will be able to make some more progress on the Mustang, if it breaks at all, I am gonna be wearing out tire tread on the motorcyle.
More pictures of the Mustang coming tonight.

I have 4 builds going at the same time, a 1/4.5 scale D Mustang, the 1/5th Warthog in the picture below and a 1/5th scale Bearcat and my Tuskegee Tribute schemed Kingcat too.

Doing a couple hours a night when I can squeeze in the time, no rush for any of them as I have not made any solid plans to do any events this summer flying related, however, this weekend I will be on the Fontana Raceway track running my motorcyle JOY!
Pictures to follow of that event this Monday.

No rest for the weary.

Ever changing and ever non stopping. This time of the year my focus is on power related aircraft in preparation for the West Coast Festival, unfortunately this year I am going to have to miss it due to family commitments and other personal interests. However, I will be building like crazy and looking at other events to attend.

For any interested, a lot of my glider fleet is up for grabs, just make me a reasonable offer.

You electric pros, I need help, looking to go battery powered conversion on an unbuilt Byron F-20. I am looking for the S... Hot best package for speed and performance. Whats the choice options and where can I get em. Looking for plug and play systems only.
Thanks in advance.
Stay tuned as always.
