I love that picture of you standing behind it.
I concur with our northern most gentleman, though I am not certain he is indeed the northern most, but I am reasonably certain he is in fact a gentleman. What I am basically saying is that I like the picture too.:biggrin:
The gentlemen factor would be directly proportional to the volume of whiskey consumed.
I've been busy with flying since the weather has been excellent for the past few weeks. Were getting a few rainy days so I'll have a little time in the shop.
Made up the V struts for the wing. It's time to do a little sanding so there won't be much to show. I still need to figure out how to cover the wire Cabane struts with wood. I might do that with balsa and cover with glass since it don't have to have any strength.
Those struts aren't pulling out of there unless they take half the wing with them.
Oh my. Interplane struts. I think I am getting all choked up.
Such nice work!
It's starting to look like an airplane. �� It only took a little over a year.
Just had my PC fixed so I'm checking it out. F/C has been slow so here I go.
Working on covering the cabane struts. I just have to Glue some wood to the wires so they don't have to be strong. I'm using a Bass wood core and Balsa sheeting on the outside. Much easier to sand. Did one side yesterday and just about have the second side covered.
Still slow uploading pictures. Slightly faster. That must have more to do with the DSL I'm using now till next Summer.
Those cabane covers look really good Tom.
This site is just really slow now. I think the server is now a desk top computer somewhere and also I think there are so many site ad scripts that continuously run here now it makes it even slower than it should be.
I would be curious to know how this site works when viewed with a very new very fast computer. Anyway....... opinions and butts....Lol
Just an update that the Struts are roughed in. I'll finish sand and glass them When I go to glass the fuse. I want to do all the glassing at once.
I sat the pilot in there to check for room. There is plenty. I have to do the interior next so I can finish the outside of the fuse so I can glass it.
Now I have to do more research on what the interior is supposed to look like.
Shouldn't that pilot have a mustache? Just sayin'.
No. because his name is Joe. Not Tom.
Started on the interior. Joe likes where I put the seat.
Built my first ever gauge. I think it's a Fuel Gauge. Now I have to find out where it goes.
note: The interior kit is not a kit. It has a lot of missing parts. Looking at the directions tell you the parts that are not included. Still a kit is supposed to have the parts to put an interior together. As of now I don't recommend the kit. The plus is that it has a few hard to make parts in it. I can put an interior together from this but I will probably have to make a few trips to the LHS.
I don’t know Tom, but I think Joe seems a little, shall we say, stiff. I really think a mustache would help. Or maybe a cushion. lol
He does look a little stiff. Once I put the helmet, goggles and a scarf on. His stiffness will be cured. :biggrin:
Finished up the cockpit this morning. The Pilot didn't come with Goggles. I'm pretty sure I can't make one so I'll have to find one. Any suggestions?
Like the way it turned out. Now I can finish sheeting above the Cockpit and then I sand the fuse and start Glassing.
Awesome!!!...but he still needs a mustache!
I think he needs Goggles to hide the creepy eyes.
Separate names with a comma.
