Flaps needed a little filler and sanding before glassing the ends and edges.
More glassing on the head rest armor.
Had to use some body filler to fill up the weave on the heavy glass hatches. Getting close to primer with all these little assemblies.
Looking good! I love looking in in your thread and seeing fresh photos
Thanks! I wasn't sure if anyone was watching.
I think we are all watching a master at work.
I hate you moved the little September Fury though. I liked seeing how much dust was collecting on it during the build. That lets me know how much you are progressing!
Yea... Balsa dust and my lathe/mil don't get along very well. grrrrr!
As much as I'd like to get a warbird some day, I really enjoyed reading/watching this build thread. Your very skilled and talented. I look forward to seeing this project come to completion and the upcoming flying videos.
Yeah I'll always be watching. Your thread inspired me to build again, and I learn a lot from looking at craftsman such as yourself work. So please realize we are out here following along and loving every minute of it.
You know I'm here...
I've been following your thread. Not a warbird guy, but building is building. Axis stuff is hardcore, everyone does the allied stuff, your build is badass!!!
Ive been following from the beginning. Great work, amazing. :thumbs::thumbs::thumbs:
Two layers of Fliteskin laminated together makes a nice hatch for the elevator servos. Real firm but flexible enough to conform to the airfoil shape. I'll get some nice button head screws from RTL at final assembly.
Yea... I get that a lot. I just picked up a Hobbico Focke-Wulf Fw 190 EP for my 9 year old boy. Guess I'll have to teach him how to paint on the Swastika's. LOL!
Lol, Don't Jew talk to me like that F'boy....
C'mon man! Axis stuff was badass!! If I ever get into turbines, thinking Horten 229 flying wing. Cool stuff.

One thing at a time Dave- We will be watching!
Clown- You should look up the Warbirds oover the rockies crash video's on you tube- somebody who commented was LIVID people had swastika's on their planes- like they were supporting them or something... Of course like 20 people reacted and told the guy he was nuts.
Since I'm flying an Allied P-47, I look forward to smoking some NAZI SCUM! LOL... You gotta do what you gotta do...:devil:
Lol! Yeah, I could imagine that happening. Funny, just like those pukes that give people a hard time about flying a Confederate flag.
Two less parts laying around the shop.
I spent the afternoon blocking up the airframe with the wings on, measuring, leveling, setting the incidence bla, bla, bla... Got the Stab and Fin assemblies final installed. Everything is real rigid with the added 1/32" plywood doublers inside the Fuselage.
Lord help me if I forgot any provisions for all the wires and cables that need to be fished through the tire hole.
