Peter Rake's 58" E.A.C. Monoplane Build

After taking care of all most of the "Spring" chores for the wife, I've finally set aside the time to build a plane that I've been wanting to build for quite a while. I had the plans for a smaller version from Flying Scale Models but was not really wanting to build a three channel version.

Fortunately , Pete decided to expanded the scale just enough to add the scale ailerons and other little touches and I was hooked on the 58" Eastbourne. This gives me the opportunity to add a bit more scale detail than I usually do.

After obtaining the drawings from Pete and the short kit from Charlie at Manzano Lazer, I began the going over the pieces and parts. A couple of the balsa engine cylinder ribs had "issues" and were promptly addressed by Charlie. Everything else seems to be ready so the build has begun... always, pictures to follow...

Working on the forward fuse sides, mounting the motor and constructing a seat for the interior. Should have the fuse in one piece this weekend.
