That is one solid looking model Heywood - nice job on the infil planking on the wing.

Sweet. The wheel pants remind me of my Willie before his surgery😳

can you picture the top wing... So I have a lot of filling and sanding to do here before I can lay up that big wing but it is coming together.

starting to look like an airplane - almost

Thanks - WRT to the door I wasn't sure exactly how to hinge it or if it could be done in such a way as to make it properly functional. In the end some fine brass tubing and a piece of finer piano wire were used. I still do not know if I can make it all work with the upper wing installed - time will tell

Every new thing I try generates a new volume of such words and phrases - I have learned to spew them carefully though..a good model can be scorched to dust if one is careless

Very well done! I used up all my unprintable words, invented a couple new ones and still couldn't accomplish what you have done here. Nice job!

Lol - It would be a massive tome..

Thanks for that tip on the canopy track. We should put together a thesaurus of unprintable words for the novices to help them with their building skills.

Great job on the infills. That door is pretty slick too.
LASTWOODSMAN, Comment for image # 3852010 May 17 16:52
Now THAT is very impressive !

you will also note that I will need to insert a couple of short lengths of the box track into the upper wing aligned with the door tracks - that will probably take a few special unprintable words on my part to accomplish but this is why we do it lol

here you can see how the canopy was cut along the edge so it would be captured in the track and at the rear for the pilot to peer out while trying desperately to see where he was going at 300mph

here you see how I sliced the box plastic extrusion just slightly off center so the wider lip would capture the canopy edge - which I also left a 1/32" lip instead of cutting it clean to the canopy line
heywooood, Comment for image # 3852210 May 17 15:46
the panel needs a little more shaving to allow full closure but we are talking about 1/32"
heywooood, Comment for image # 3852110 May 17 15:45
the doors almost have the full range of motion to the sides.
heywooood, Comment for image # 3852010 May 17 15:44
I know it isn't as pretty as piano hinge but it works and it is more durable.. I will fair in the ends with balsa and paste to make it a little cleaner
heywooood, Image # 3852310 May 17 15:42

yes - it works !
