So now available are inner and outer cannon shrouds as seen in the first picture. I have not gotten the springs yet but will be available as in the parts list if anyone orders from "Kirk"..You can also see the gun blisters on the wing. These are prototypes. When I chart tape off panels will make sure they are correct. The production versions will probably have a small flange like full size.
The teardrop blister over the cowl valve covers is printed to match the curvature of the cowl. Will again size this up to make sure looks correct before production versions which will also probably have a small flange.

As leading edge of tail feathers are sheet metal on full size I am building up leading edge with primer to simulate. Also shot some primer on inboard wings to look for any defects I need to fix

More body putty then primer on fuse, looks very smooth now. Also built up leading edge on horizontal stab with primer to simulate the underlying metal sheeting there.

I made up a light kit from electrodynamics. No heat from their LED's These are pictures of the landing light. Trapezoid 3D printed the holder and octopus screen that holds the lens in. The lens is from I fly tallies. One picture obviously is with landing light on. The other is to show what it looks like in the landing light well in leading edge of wing. Just awesome like the real thing

Back on now the holidays are over. First picture shows blisters over the valve covers. 2nd picture shows the conduit taking air in from the oil cooler scoop into the airframe. The 3rd picture shows the hole the conduit will bring air into where the speed controller will be mounted. The 4th picture shows the 6V fan that will help draw cold air in thru the conduit to blow over the speed controller to keep it cool.

Default Hurri for my next build

This all sounds good but I don't have a 3D printer so will all of the components be available? Any kit cutters cutting it yet? I really like this plane so I hope they do a good job making it available.
