Last but not least, the cowling.

Finished recessing the louvers and now the silk is completed.

One coat and a quick 250 brakes off the hanging silk.

Few more coats and the model will be ready for primer.

That's when the work really begins.

Cowling completed with recessed working louvers to vent out hot air.

Primer to follow.

The Gee Bee R3 is now totally framed and ready for finishing. The real work is about to begin.

Maybe.

Traian,

Thanks for the reply.

You mean ARGO. No I haven't, it's not totally finished. I'm trying to sell it.  ;D

I think I will fly the Stuka first. I have a few things to do to it first.

I believe the Stuka will work well off of our flying field. But, I do have a great parking lot I could use.

Thanks again for the reply.
