Default Cowl for 4*120 ??

Hi,

I'm going to be building a 4*120 and was wondering if anyone knows if any cowls from any ARF planes or kits will fit this with minimal modification? I will be putting a SuperTigre G2300 in this but am not sure yet weather I will be mounting it upright or on its side.....maybe even inverted...but I will decide on that when the time comes. I know one can be made with balsa but I don't want to have to do that unless absolutely necessary. Any info would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks,

Adam

I used a Great planes 60 sized cub cowl had to widen the fuse 1/2 inch . It hides the Ryobi very well.

Thanks for the reply Randy. Just got the kit today and was looking over the plans getting and idea of the mods I can do to improve on it. With the dimensions at hand it will be easier to figure something out.


Thanks,


Adam

This is a four star 60 I just finished. You can make the same noise modification to the 120. You cut off the cheeks and build a cowl that fits perfectly to your engine. It takes a little time but its not hard and the final results turns out pretty nice? I found the instructions on how its done on the web and I believe I have a copy if you want them.

Hi mobi,


That plane is SWEET !!! Looks really nice. I acrtually have a link for that site... I think it's Tom Pierce's. I'm keeping that as an option, but I'm trying to avoid having to do that if I can.....but it's not totally out of the question.


Thanks,


Adam

I could copy them for you....but I'm not sure how I would because my scanner is much smaller thean the plans. If you have an idea .....I would be more than happy to. They are a bit beat up, but more than acurately useable.

I live near a contracting business that has those blueprint printers or whatever they are called. I know that they can copy them. Email me direct if you want to do it that way.
