I am making progress on this project. :wink:
Fuselage bottom and right handside covered
next weekend should see the fuse completely covered (!!)
Still deciding on either reinstalling 618 or going for 912. Finances will be determining factor :roll:
I can't post pics as they are too BIG. and I am too stupid to make them small :lol:
Colour sceme will be ......white with dark red cowl, wingtips, elevator and rudder.
Panel: steam except for MGL AH/compass and MGL Stratomaster engine monitor. Radio King radio and transponder C
I fitted a fishing rod/rifle bag that extends into rear of fuse for those weekends away
Tyres 6.00-6 aircraft tyres with KFA swiveling tailwheel :wink: vhpy

Mooi Avgas, Well done (^^)

If you keep on convincing the Bank Manager this way you might just have her ready to fly to Zeerust on 25 Feb, or at least have her ready as camera ship on the Tailwheels to Nylstroom weekend when hopefullt one of the J3 Cub celebrations will paint the town yellow and many air-to-air sorties might be flown. :shock:

Keep up the good work and keep us posted!

En dan nog die familie verpligtinge. My twee laaities vlieg eerder radio controls of hang uit by die vliegveld saam met my as wat hulle op die plaas wil wees wanneer ek bou :lol:

My ability to post pics does not prove good. :oops: :oops:
I do not know how to get the size acceptable for the forum ##
I will ask the wife she may know :lol:
Jason
the Bearhawk is the next in the workshop for sure. I am however going to buy a wing kit if the rand $ allows it.
