10-4. I'd stiil be interested in seeing a how-to on the removable system, someday.

 With using the foamie wheels on this one you might want to just make two sets now then.  S?P :##
removable landing gear, my specialty,,I have removed a few sets of gear,,

oh wait, you mean other than scraping them off on the ground removable,, hmm

Wayne, I suspect that they will hold up OK. But if they get too worn down, I'll just build another set.

Yes, Mark, you are very good a scrapage.

So, here's the thing with the hood. Not sure I like it much, but that's what's on the plans. Gonna be a pain to paint it. But should be OK when done.

 Hmm. I wasn't sure what you were getting at when you mentioned the "hood" earlier. If anyone can make it look good it'll be you Randy, but I'm not envious of that task.  D>K

All I can say Randy is, it might be a good thing you are not planning on VSC this year, there is a LOT of contours to sand on that beast not to mention the wing,,
It will certainly be a unique addition to the fleet,,

Art Adamisin said Jerry had about 5 tools! He designed some of my favorite models, Apertyx, Electra X-35, Boeing P-26 Scale model and the Top Flite P-51D Mustang Scale kit.

So, I'm back from 2 weeks in the sun and sand. And it's freezing, of course. More so because I got used to 82F.

So, it will be back to the Worth-mobile.

OK, so I think I need a new scale. I weighed the plane below as you can see it. 2 or 3 gear and the mount for the bench on the front. I know it weighs about 3oz. The scale says the plane weighs 11oz. Either I'm the lightest builder in history or the scale is off. I'm betting on the the scale being off.

Its looking pretty good, and boy I am impressed with that weight,,

maybe let me know what it is after you change the battery in the scale... although one scale I had did that and I found a shaving curl of balsa under the table,,

No, not 8.5oz. I wish. I suspect when it's done and ready to finish it will come in around 25oz. Probably 5 or 6oz more than I wanted. Have to go really light on the paint. The original was 60+ so I should be OK.

Craig's List. Just look under the Stunt Bitch Header.

Here's the thing done except for the flap fillets and final sanding. And cutting down the nose wheel height just a bit. I have a trick for that.

So, here is the final. It done with the building part and apart for a little prep sanding, it ready to finish. Managed to lower the nosewheel a bit so it sits level now and straightened the main gear so it's parallel with the centerline (that was a bit of a pain). And the fillets for the flaps are done.

Is this one going to have one of your super simple paint schemes? LL~ LL~  Really is looking gorgeous.  For some reason I've always liked the looks of planes showing lots of ribs.  By the way I won't make it to Tuscon again unless some miracle happens. H^^

Hey Doc. I'm copying the original paint scheme. Basically white with red and blue trim.

And I won't be at VSC either. I had planned to, but it didn't work out. Next year, for sure.

Randy, I konw the last few weeks you have been getting lots of handle time on the chain saw, please make sure you translate your inputs from chain saw worthy to delicate brush worthy prior to attempting to affix the covering on your creation,, silkspan is hard to come by and shredding it with the chain saw will not extend the life of your limited supply

as always, just trying to help  H^^
