Keith, If your interested and willing you could design your own drawings and construction details + the modifications you have done based upon the prototype your building and sell it to a Kit or ARF manufacturers and I believe you could get big deal of money out of it !

Regards, Fawaz.

Doug was round again last evening and we completed the glassing of the main wings. We work very well together, Doug mixes the resin and dispenses it as required whilst I spread the resin with a credit card.
I also have done quite a bit of work on the cowl and beside the scale louvres on the side I have added a non scale louvre on the underside to ensure adequate cooling airflow
It remains now only to cut out side louvre panels and provide the required means of re-attachment with scale fixing screws.
The cowl will then be ready for priming.

Keith is simply an outstanding builder and great freind - I have the pleasure of watching him work and then getting to fly our planes when they are finished.

From a flying perspctive each and every model that Keith has scratch built has flown straight from the off - very little if any trim adjustment required which is testament to Keiths building skills.

This will be our 4th Scratch built model and I can't wait until we fly here next spring - I'm sure like our Cessna 182, PA 12 Super Cruiser and Luscombe Silvaire the Cherokee will be a beauty to fly.

Anyway - have to go now as I'm off over to see how Keith is getting on tonight.

Thanks for all your kind comments.


The colour scheme is blue and white. On page one of the thread is a picture of the full size that the model will be based on

Keith, Your talents continue to amaze me. You definately have the eye for scale. I can't wait to see the finished product. Cherokee's are dear to me, as I'm sure they are to many others.
