I added wood to the edge of the cockpit to insure there's enough to glue the canopy to.

It's been windy and cold in Tucson and I can't dope until it gets over 70 degrees.

Well done, David. I'm with Heywood, looking forward to seeing the finished model.

the Hurdles..once you get past the last one it is definitely a relief..and a motivation to hold the line and stay worthy of the work already done. I can't wait to see this model come down the home stretch

Thank you, Kevin. It also is the point at which I feel that the most difficult part is done.

Thanks, we are! Itís been a crazy year, especially with the passing of my wife. The kids are basically young adults now, time flies! I hope to get back to building again soon, got a bunch of kits waiting for me 😊

Looking great, David!

it's true that there are one or two key features or defining characteristics of every airplane..the things that make them unique unto themselves. For this one I would say the cowling is the main one and that the other would be it's overall North American-ness..it's kinship to the P-51 (tail fin and shape of the vertical fin/rudder and elevator as well as the wing plan-form and airfoil and to the FJ-1 Fury... The cowling and power plant definitely draw the eyes though. This one is a winner

I'm relieved that the cowl turned out as well as it did considering what it looked like when I started. The rest of the build will be the familiar sand and dope ad infinitum readying it for covering and paint.

What Don said.

And it's no longer a "taildragger". Cowling really looks good.

THe cowling was glued on with medium CA. Tomorrow I'll sand it all smooth.

I used the slots for the motor mounts and glued the engine on them. THen I added a bottom, LOTS of lead weights, and then filled it with filler.

THe engine is from the Guillows Corsair.
