  2. Finished the plumbing this morning. Then I found out that I put the rear stripe in the wrong place so I had to fix it. Then I sat down and figured out how to use the awl. Did an OK Job. I'll get better as I do more. The pilot is to tall in the cockpit so I'll have to cut him down to size.

  4. Not much done but there isn't much left to do :) painted the stripe on the wheels and cut the pilot down to size. Now he looks even better in the cockpit. :)

  6. Spent the morning finishing up the plane. Glued the pilot, guns and the gun sight in. Mounted the wheels and balanced the prop. It didn't need it. This is the first wooden prop that I ever had that didn't need balancing. Made up some ruber exhaust Extensions. Then just as I was getting ready to assemble the plane to take it outside to fire it up the Stencils showed up. So I started painting again. Had to stop and pick up a new sliding door for the back of the house. It will be installed Friday. So I worked late and finished up the painting. All thats left is balancing the plane . Looks like Maiden on Saturday in Muncie. :)
