1939 Rearwin Sportster 9000L "Wally" Update 11/29/12

Well it's finally back on the build table... Started putting some color on it and trying to make it match the real airplane. Once finished it will get a coat or two of clear acrylic gloss coat spray to give it a shine. The wings are next, I think I am going to permanently glue them on as the plane will be more for display than a flying model. I will fly it at least once... maybe. More to come... Mudman1959

Finished painting the wings and temporarily installed them. Still lots to do but I can finally see a light at the end of the tunnel.... Mudman1959

11/29/12 The landing gear and wing struts are on and secure with the wings are glued on permanent. A little touch up on the paint and a good balancing and then if the weather allows... maybe a test flight... Mudman1959

Here is the links to the plans I followed to make this plane... Mudman1959

Update 11/29/12 The wings are on permanently and the wing struts and landing gear are mounted and secure. Now for a good balancing and some ground testing and then we will see if it flies. The conditions will have to be perfect! Mudman1959

Nice suprize!

I tuned into the RC Radio Network out of Cummins Georgia from the guys at Atlanta Hobbies a couple of nights back... well I tuned in just in time as they popped a photo of this plane up for all to see and talked about it for a few on their Ustream broadcast. Nice to see people enjoying it. Mudman1959
