Wish I had this in a hangar. Starting to look like a full size C3.

Covered the fuselage. Love the texture of this material . It looks like doped fabric, just a bit heavy.

Engine looks good.

Used white card stock first, painted with Model Masters Aluminum . Then I remembered the silver card stock.

In the process of fairing in the engine, I tried some card stock to mare it look like aluminum panels. Using deviders I simulate fasteners thru the inside. Worked great!

Nifty engineering.

Aluminum tubing and a spring from an ink pen. And tools from my tool box, no they are not for sale.

That is a wonderful RC balsa build Huey! Even working live oleo struts! Where can we get these?

The plans call for this engine to be used. It's actually bigger than the drawing on the plans. Faring it in was a challenge.

Using Solartex, it's a little heavy but I like the texture. It looks like a doped fabric.

Need to come up with a centering spring for the tail wheel.

Main gear struts installed, live olio struts.

LOL - Huey - you're killing me here - "road kill pose"? I once saw a groundhog laying flat as a rug under a half ton truck beside one of the tires. I thought it was run over a few times, until it got up and ran away ... Then there's this redneck with a bumper sticker on his half ton - "lose your cat? - check under my tires" ...

Oops, new copilot, 5mths old HALO, road kill pose....

Fairing in the 985, bigger than the 200hp J5.
