First, need to carefully observe the Continental R-670s. If they used the Lycoming R-680s, then they're designated PT-13s. Go figure.

Okay guys. This is my first model after almost 30 years of abstinence. With it, comes trials & tribulations with dashes of lessons learned (and errors to avoid). Keep in mind, all I have are: a pair of tweezers, needle nose pliers, scissors, an X-Acto knife and lots of imagination. Going to start off on how I (somehow) managed to scratch build the radial engine for the Guillow's PT-17.

Because this is foam, the leading and trailing edges are thick. Photos of the real F-16 look like you could shave with those wings. Sanding process started.

For the camera I found this PVC fitting from the hardware store. I'm not sure what it is used for, but was almost perfect for my needs.

Getting the upper wing attached with only 2 hands was interesting.

After advice I shifted to acrylic. Thanks Dave Duckett. It really worked a lot better. Several thin coats as suggested.

My kids gave me a happy hour over southern Maryland for my 69th. It's what I hope to recreate.
