Thanks to warbird51 for the dimensions on the length of the nose gear. Thought you might be interested in seeing the current status of my build of the old red box 39 from my modified plans. I have used foam core wings and a built up fuse to replace the old plastic section which as you all know is no longer available. The tank is in and am now doing the preliminary radio install/pushrods. Then the fillets and bottom sheeting. Then I should be ready to glass and paint. This build is intentionally old school - upright 2S motor, fixed gear, no flaps. I hoping this will become my daily flyer to replace my aging kaos which is now almost 20 years old. I have attched some pictures - hope they come thru.
Pic1 - built up nose using balsa and pink foam
Pic2 - cockpit/canopy area (was lucky enough a few years ago to get a canopy from a fellow here on RCU
Pic3 - beefed up tail (1/4 framing with 1/16 sheeting)
Pic4 - wing tips carved from foam - glassing should protect this
For some reason the upload changed the order of the pictures but I think from the photos you can figure which is which
