Pat,

In another thread of yours that I read through recently, I noticed a link to the Dumas website, so I paid them a visit. That place is EVIL!!! I have some other things on my plate (trying to get my FunBuild entry started still, haha!), but I made a "small" list of things I'd like to give a shot at . . .

Phillip, The lines you see on the wing are the ribs. The cover is ironed to them to make the wing nice and stiff and hold its shape.

The Tri-Pacer's looking great. I especially like the way the cabin area is formed; on a full-scale TP, there is a bit of asymmetry, due to the staggered doors. You got it RIGHT!

There are a bunch of nice pix on the short wing Piper club website, for those looking for a color scheme....

Yak, The Tri-Pacer is basically done, just waiting for the cowl to arrive. Ten can finish it up and get the CG set up and battery mounted.

Scott,Your timing couldn't have been better. The cowl arrived today. It's done up in 4 pieces, and as we've come to kind of expect from Sparky, it's a real work of art!

It's set up in a top & bottom piece with a seperate nose bowl. When done this way, it's for the Pacer version. Then simply by adding the lower air box it becomes Tri-Pacer. Here's what the raw parts look like, complete with engine detail.....

Assembly Begins...........


The parts were cut out along the provided parting lines and dry fit to find that the three sections fit perfectly. The bowl was clamped to the lower section and glued together from the inside using Ambroid Weld Cement. Then the lower airbox was alined and glued in place.
