Not that i am an expert, but that is my question also. I build aeroplanes for a living and the self imposed rule is : never leave a job for later if you can finish it while busy with it. This has made life mmmmuuuuccchhh easier for me on many occasions. Just my humble opinion, not trying to tell you what to do Trev. I must say you are doing a very nice job, and i admire your dedication (^^) (^^) (^^)

Well guys the reason is that I still need to give the mounting system at this point some serious thought before doing it and this entire area which is marked in red is not covered with ceconite there is a hard mounted panel which covers it so there is no difference once the plane has been covered but everything behind this will be permanently fastened before covering. As you guys say its better to do those challenging areas before covering.

And you should move all those controls that are hanging out the bottom of the fuselage, to the inside of the cabin. Much less drag.
Airspeed, altitude, or brains....you always need at least two

Ha ha LOL thanks for the chuckle Jean I need it at this stage. Guys I havent been able to get to the hangar for a long time I think since I installed those cabin roof windows. The new business is doing great and has grabbed me around the neck and wont let go, and Im also opening branches in Guateng and Swakopmund soon so the Horizon ( :lol: :lol: ) looks a bit bleak as far as time goes at the moment. But I was chatting to someone over the weekend who may be available to jump in and do some work but I think that might make me feel like my wife is cheating :) . But I sure miss my baby actually popped into the hangar to pick up some of the model planes a week ago and I didnt want to leave :cry:.

Hi guys,

I just bought this project from Go Vert and will complete the project and hopefully have lots of fun flying her!

It will just be a while before I can get started, as I am out of the country at the moment and will only be back during August. I will post some updates as the project progresses.
