The interior looks incredible Tom.
I am surprised the pilot did bring his own goggles. I mean, WTF. I think you are going to have to make them somehow. I wonder if any GI Joe dolls would come with something similar.

We had our manual Chili Fly yesterday. Only 10 people showed up. To bad for the rest of the Club cause the Chili was great. This usually signals the end of the flying season around here. We've had an excellent fall for flying. Make's up for the crappy spring we had. Its 75F today but in 3 days the high will be 50F. We keep our eyes on the forecast and try to be ready to take something to the field. Now we designate March 15 for the beginning of the 2018 flying season. Anything in between there is a bonus.

Back to building season. Hope to make better progress from here on on the Albi.
The Cockpit is finished. Made up the tail skid and mounted it. Now I'm trying to finish the Axle. Looks like I will have to rework the soldered lower part of the main gear. I saw a better way of doing it then what I have.
got to make my OCD happy.

I am digging that skid and it’s finish.
Any word on the goggles?

No. BUSA don't have any. I'll find one before next spring.

I know I need to keep up here a little better but most of you follow me on F/B so you already are up to date.
Here it is for the rest of you. I made clearance for the muffler, mad two hatch doors for the ruder access, glassed the fuselage and finished fabricating the front landing gear. Things are starting to shape up when Baby has shoes.

The pictures sure look better here than on FB where they dumb down the resolution.

I agree with the Dougster.
This plane looks fantastic Tom.
Thanks for keeping The Circus updated as well.
