    Thank you ,
    The construction is finished, so now a lot of detail work, all fuselage markings should be done shortly, then on to the instrument panel which I had to start over a few times, then the seats, which are done but not all upholstery is done. Probably in January will change all the servos for Blubirds, One wing is done as for better linkage fit, then the other wing . I got word from Hans Kolm that the crankcase of the 50% continental O200 engine is done, and everything seems on track for engine test in the spring, by that time I should be ready to test fly, and if everything is OK , and all trimming done, would like to have a few flights to get ready for May of 2019.

    It is hard to imagine the intensity of this build. The overall construction, the attention to detail, the "Continental 0200". Wow, If I do nothing in 2019, it will be because I am saving all my time and money to see this masterpiece in person. I am staying with your thread to the end.

    working on designing the proper lettering for the Dalotel since he didn't use any commercial fonts but all hand painted, first designed in Solidworks, them sized properly, then saved as a STL extension then on to convert to G code then on the printer and this is one result, I will have stencils made , the print you see here is 1mm thick
