Wouldn't you want to NOT make all mistakes, regardless of where they are located on the airplane?

The paneling and riveting couldn't look better. Fantastic build.

Obviously, I try not to make mistakes! But there's a learning curve to anything, and I would rather have that happen on the bottom, not the top.

Thanks Tim, it's getting there. I made some measurement mistakes on the bottom that I am making sure I do not make on the top.

I have figured out that whatever line you do on one panel, you have to immediately do on the other panel.
Also, once a line is there, it's there So, make positive that you measure correctly!

Wow Mark, didn't realize this was the 2nd attempt. Really is amazing dedication.

Please do a Reno Tsunami?

My Curares on on display at the Sing Hobby office.... Still too chicken to fly. Will get airborne with something else first. Then the A-26 at some point!

Watching your logs with a lot of inspiration!

Yeah, I learned a lot from the wee one. She was a lot smaller.
Things are easier these days with brushless and lipo. I've always liked a challenge That one flew, but not too well..underpowered, but neat for its time!

I'm sure if you did some digging there a Tsunami plan out there. I hear the remains of the bird are still around..

Yup, been following the rebuild when I get wind of any movement.

Believe it or not, I have a die cast version from Japan.

Got the plan from Michael Luvara and only got as far as the fuselage. Been distracted since and Singapore's been running out of space for legal spots to fly glow. That's why the flurry of interest in electrics of late. Here's how far I got:
http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_85...tm.htm#8539467

Anyhow, been curious how a smaller Tsunami will perform. I'm not savvy on the aerofoils, etc so wouldn't know how to scale down the plan. As you can see the Curare hasn't maidened, so, can't say the courage is there to try yet.

Got an easy OK Models Piper J-3 in the works to start the flying currency. Ok, enough said... back to the matter at hand... PM!
