Engine cowling continued.
Monday, July 23, 2007
I have started on the engine cowling. Suddenly you can really see her shape.
Because of the shape change due to the cowl cheek the -4 cowl is a much more robust structure than the -9a cowl with I worked with last time.
For more details of the engine cowl work go to 'Finish Kit'.

Hanging the Engine
Monday, July 09, 2007
I have minor details to do to the fuselage; rudder cable exits/fairing, rudder stops, elevator stops and then its on to the engine and systems. I much prefer that.
The last few weeks have been spent fitting the canopy. I fixed it with Sikaflex rather than rivets. If you are interested go too the 'Finish Kit' section of the blog.
I sat in it for the first time a few days ago with the canopy on. The seating position is reminiscent of my Supercub.
