Here's my other Winter project. This is a new wing for my old Kadet Senior that I had in the works since before the crash of the old one. I just finished the covering on it tonight. Need to cover the last aileron, glue the ailerons hinges, and make the pushrods for them.

The new fuselage will be a framed up Kadet that has passed through a few hands recently looking for someone to finally finish it up. I've been installing engine, radio, wing mount (bolts), and leveling off the places the wings and tail install. It should be ready to cover shortly as well.

Nice job. Wish I could cover like that!

Thanks, but I'm sure you can cover just as well. I just take blurry photos so you can't see all the mistakes.

I got two.
Just finished up my Nemeth Parasol. AKA the Umbrella plane.
And I'm just starting up another Stampe. This one is a 56" span sport scale for a .90 FS

Thread OP
Is there anyone here that can 3d print a small motor mount? The file is on thingiverse.
Or know of someone that does?

What winter?

Well this is a multi-winter project emulating roughly what the EAA Pietenpol Youth Project is building. (visit [URL="http://www.eaa690.org"] for pictures of the full scale build.) The majority of the construction is done and on to the rigging and servo pull, pull construction. Figuring out how to get it into my car was never thought out, period. Wing span is 84" in two panels. Maybe by next winter.

Looks like a floater.
Have you decided on a color yet. (I don't want to miss it when she comes out)

No colors until the kids finish, cover and paint the full size Piet. The plan is to follow there lead. We are putting the controls in the full size now and rigging the elevator cables. Wings and ailerons to follow. Rudder pedals not in place so plenty of time to finish the model. Oh yeah then the wings and an engine, wheels, instruments and . . .

Well, my next project should be ready in a week or two. Just need to glue the tail together and do the final radio hookups.

Photos are a little weird today, (sry), as I tried using the RunCam.

Fuselage is mostly covered, and I am prepping to epoxy the horizontal stab on tonight. Need to pick up more covering after that though - hopefully I can scrounge some up at Perry. Kadet Senior apparently takes just over four rolls of moneyKote...

Looks good.
What's going in the nose?
I've brought 2 retired foamies back to airworthy status.
Winter (even mild ones) is good for stuff like that.

An OS Max 70fs - if it still works?

Should really move out.
That's what I have in my 8lb. tripacer and it's fast.

I've started building the wings of the Little Stampe.
Got 2 panels framed up and the third layed out.
Takes a while as I have to fit the spar notches, they're a bit too shallow.
