I can't wait for him to finish it. Then I can come down and fly the Camel while he flies his Fokker. Should make for some real cool combat. ;)

Finished up the flying wires. Made up the tail skid. Plumbed the fuel tank but ran short on fuel line for the vent hose. I'll finish that tomorrow. Art Frye has some so he'll save me a trip to the LHS.
I also got the Sewing Awl in the mail yesterday. Time top learn how to sew. LOL.

So are you going to hook up a bungie to the tail skid? :leaving:
No its a fake. I did the Fokker the same way. Just used the stock tail skid wire and incased it in ply wood. Still springs but looks better then the wire.

Finished the plumbing this morning. Then I found out that I put the rear stripe in the wrong place so I had to fix it. Then I sat down and figured out how to use the awl. Did an OK Job. I'll get better as I do more. The pilot is to tall in the cockpit so I'll have to cut him down to size.

Oh, THAT leather. Lol.
I would have just went with the split neoprene and called it a day. But I guess that is why you are you and I am not. That looks really impressive to me Tom.

Now he should be able to use those gun sights to shoot down those Fokker's, the Germans, not the family.:)

I hate making a base for a pilot. It is so tedious and time consuming. Or at least for me it is.
