Scale PJ 295 build.

I have read several times to build the second side on top of the first to get two identical sides, I've done it once or twice. Since I normally have the plans for some time before building I see little chance that the plans will change due to humidity changes. Pretty sure this is your case!
As far as the thrust is concerned, you can always add the right and down thrust later by shimming.
Nice build you going here.

Here's some good reading about biplanes from the late Miles Reed. This was copied from the IMAA GS Handbook.

Thank you for the read Tony.
These pictures I have posted make it look like I put glops of glue on, I do not, and I wipe any access from all joints.
Tony somewhere you posted hidden control arms, I can not find those posts. Would you remember where those posts are?

Wonder what the scale linkage looks like? Looks like a horn and servo buried might be more scale like.

Interesting. I was planning on using one servo per aileron, maybe not now.

That picture show a few differences to the plans I have. The fuse strut's on mine are the same but the wing strut's are more like a "N" and it does not show any support wires on the plans or mention then anywhere. I do like the way the exhaust exits the cowl. I believe I can do that.

Not sure where you found that picture, it never came up in my search's.

Going to pause on this plane for a while. My wife slipped on ice yesterday and broke her left wrist and knee. Needs surgery on both.
