For those that may be wondering "how did he get those control rods in ??? " . Its really quite simple the right size drill that fits snugly in the push rod outer and wind it in by hand,just a simple trick but works well .

Love that plane, hope to get back to my Macchi (a similar design) some day. What’s the span on yours Steve, looks pretty big!

Going to use the same hatch method I used on Hurricane, you can also see 2 lightening holes which give access to the forward compartment, get the lead in

Great subject Steve, They are really sleek ships, and I like the lines better than the Macchi.
Following your build with interest.
I got "project block" on mine....life got in the way....yada yada....
Anyway, I still hope to giterdun. Mine is fiberglass fuselage, standard foam wings..a little bigger than standard SoCal PSS at 55 inch wingspan. Pictures show what I have sitting still after about 2 years now...

More info on my build in my blog.
