SHOOTS! Just realize the prop could possibly be 18"?

What electric systems would anyone recommend on this?

Nice progress!

For the electronics, personally, I would benchmark recommended power systems from similar sized/style aircraft.

The cowling ribs are illustrated (in length/cutouts) in the plans? I estimated the length in my make. Not sure if its on the plans.

Your cowl looks pretty good for estimating.

To get the right length of the stringers in the cowl I used a temporary fixture to hold the formers in place. Then I cut the stringers to the right length to match the fixture. After all the stringers were glued, I removed the fixture. Here are some plans for the fixture.

Thanks. I probably missed that tip. But going to continue the fuselage and leaving the motor/mount and cowling towards the end.

Also, have to drive my bigger car to the store for the LARGE Depron Sheets.
