Dumas Kit #401, Laird Super Solution by heywooood
heywoooodfuselage is framed - so is the cowling..
heywoooodactually got this done yesterday. This model and the Dumas GeeBee Z are very well executed kits. Drawings, directions, materials provided, everything is first rate. I did find a small error (typo) in the instructions sheet - an incorrect former number was referenced WRT placing a stringer. I will email Dumas and see if they are aware of it yet..

Herr Engineering HRR 105, Fokker D-7 by LASTWOODSMAN
LASTWOODSMANSpeaking of snakes, I caught one of these "Fox Snakes" bare-handed 50 yrs ago when I was 10. It was 6 feet long and 6" in diameter, trying to slither away fast up the far bank of the creek near our house - I instinctively poounced on him right away with a good firm grip on his neck just behind the head as I held him down with my foot. He coiled right up my arm like the constrictor he is, and I brought him into the kitchen to freak out my mom ... then let him go.
John M OshustInteresting story. They are delicious sliced into thin circular steaks. Dipped in milk, egg, and bread crumbs, very tasty. They taste just like frogs, which, BTW, taste like chicken!
Don CBetter than chicken, but a lot more work.

thinking about the engine mounting and the cockpit details...feeling under the weather today doesn't help. I'll just be reading and researching and thinking about my options here for the next day or two.

The laminated prop carving block is all glued up and clamped with two larger outside 1/8" thick clamping protection bare balsa sheet plates. There should be thick grain lines of alternating bronze and burnt sienna colors with enough bare balsa between them to accept red "Cabernet" wood stain after prop carving and sanding - I hope ...

The planks are being white glued and stacked - the bronze side face of one plank is glued to the bronze side face of the next plank, and the burnt sienna side face of one plank is glued to the burnt sienna face of the next plank etc etc - the glue should dry invisible.

The planks and many clamps are ready, plus two 1/8" thick larger "bare" blasa plank/sheets for protection of the lamination planks from the clamp teeth.
