Boet, sê vir Manie as hy my nie laat weet wanneer die Raven terug is in Pools, nie gaan ek hom nooit vergewe nie.
Lyk ongelooflik mooi!!

Dit lyk sommer spoggerig! Manie, ou vriend, jy het n baie mooi aerie gebou... Boet, nog n ou vriend, jy het hom baie mooi ge-finish!

Manne, julle kan trots wees op jul gawe vir sulke mooi handewerk!

Ou Man, Dit lyk vir my ek moet meer aeries aanskaf dan gaan jy minder hier verby ry sonder om in te loer...Hahahahaa.
Yes, Boet did some excellent work here. A lot of sweat went into the cowl, and luckily he could bring forward with his handywork what I was visualizing in my head. After I have installed the engine and radiator and oil cooler as they do on the Zodiac, with the radiator under the gearbox and oil cooler under the sump, Boet looked at it and said he have better plan for getting the "turbine" look and moved the radiator to the righthand side and the oil cooler under the gearbox. Must say that he did a very good job here and we'll have to see in flight testing what the temperatures will be doing, but at this stage it looks like we might have to close up some of the airflow so that it does not run too cold. Boet will probably upload some photos of the NACA duct for the radiator on the RHS.
But overall I'm am so pleased with his paintwork, which also was a 50/50 input from us both on the design and his wingroot fairings that he fabricated. I will test fly the aircraft first without the wheelspats and wingroot fairings and after some good documented figures, put them on the aircraft and test the improvement or not of these items on the performance of the plane.
Boet, thanks a lot, man!

Hi Boet
Dit is 'n baie mooi "cowl". Ek geniet dit om na jou projekte te kyk.
Hoe maak jy die wheelspats
