Rather than simply marking the cooling holes, I decided to allow my OCD (just a small part, mind you) run a bit wild and used a pine vise to drill out the holes.

Using tubular plastic purchased at a local hobby store (only 35 miles from where I live) to cut up the cylinders for the engine. All sizes were from careful use of the retinae supplemented with glass protection (eyeballs), resulted in pretty close tolerances..

Where was I? Oh yeah. Building the Wright Bros' engine. Here to make the flat plate on top of the engine. Used a T pin to push out the rivets on the other side.

Finally finished! For those of you who don't know this, elevatoranj and I a little flight competition going on between us. I just want everybody to see what I am up against. As you can see, his plane has a much bigger wing span. Our competition is not how fat each plane will fly, it's how long will it stay in flight. Wish me luck fellas! I think I'm the underdog !

This is the leftover plastic part from the Guillow B-17 that elevatoranj was mentioning.

Herr Beech Bonanza complete and ready to fly. Just waiting for elevatoranj to finish his plane (in background) so that we can have our flight competition. Wheels on my plane are removeable for flight. The only thing left for me to do is balance it.

Almost done. Still have bottom of wing section to cover, stringers need to be added to cover the tail section. Then bottom of plane needs to be covered. Anj has a long way to go to catch up to me before we have our flight comtetition!
