It looks OK. Anticipating your reviews.

Strange stuff.

Trying out this stuff EZE-Dope, not sure if I like it yet.

Two coats of sealer, filling next.

Well done, Huey.

Twenty extra mph sounds about right for a high-powered racer like the Gee Bee. In a race, that can make a lot of difference between success and second place.

I like your wheel pants too.
Don C, Comment for image # 3810614 Mar 17 12:28
They look more like trousers than pants. Nice job.

My best uneducated guess that the wheel pants got it a 20 mph increase in speed.

They look super. Stream line wheel pants or eliminating the extra pants mass. Which makes the the aircraft faster? Wonder if they tested this?

Beautiful job, Huey. The smooth contours really show through.

Prefiled and ready for paint.

Big wheel pants....

Huey, was that Bob Odegard by any chance originally from southern Minnesota?

Sorry about your buddies... Thanks for the Ecardmodels website tip.

No, I haven't posted any. I have 300+ Fiddlers Green items. When I was board, while in Afghanistan (5 months) I'd build some of them. Then I found Ecandmodels, much better models. They even have the F2G that my frend Dick Becker flew (Race 74). Unfortunately Bob Odegard was killed with it a couple of years ago (also a friend).

Thanks Huey. Huey - you mentioned paper models - did you post pics on VA somewhere of your paper and cardmodels (if so, what aircraft are they under?)- I thought I saw some somewhere but I can't find them. I would like to try a couple of those, I even had previously printed out "Fiddlers Green" website of their "early flying machines" models, pics and history. They only take paypal and you have to order on line. I can't even find their address or phone number ... Any Hobby shops in the USA or Canada sell their models?

Woodie, I have 65# paper card stock that I use for paper models. I made a pattern first. Made a copy out of 1/32 sheet balsa. Sprayed the out side with Windex. Attached the sheet with C/A to the top stringer and wrapped with blue painters tape (it comes off easier). Then I used Tight Bond to finish gluing after the sheet had dried. The 1/32 sheet pulled back easy and didn't break. Had one small piece to fill in at the bottom.

Looking good.
