Very nice looking airplane. I'd like to learn more about it ,too. A photo of the engine/pipe installation would be nice!

Chris that is one sexy plane! Did it make weight? My friend and I looked at that plane for over an hour Friday! I seriously would like to build one. I have a cnc foam cutter and laser that is begging for that one!

The fuselage and tail are very light, the wings are another story. Being glassed and painted, these were made to be “show” wings. Another set is in the works and will be film covered. As is, it’s currently about a pound overweight, but I knew that I was pushing the envelope with a gas engine for a power plant AND an all painted finish.

I’ll start a thread here once I get my new laser cut wing parts and construction of those gets underway.

Thanks for the compliments!

Great looking airplane and a beautiful finish. What is it painted with? You started with about 3 pounds of engine weight; so the remainder of your building and equipment weight was pretty restricted. I have a couple of big Moki's (1.80 &2.10) that I have been thinking about using in a pattern design. I'll be interested to read your flight report. Thanks for posting! :-)

I'm about an hour south of you in Farmington Hills, where do you fly? I would love to see that plane again, as I to was admiring it at Toledo.
