    Jeff Micko Hellcat

    Over the weekend I picked up my Micko Hellcat. It will be powered by a Moki 150-180.

    Quality of work is outstanding and the value was amazing compared to what I got for my Ziroli glass fuse. I must say that this was a very good value for dollar. It is my understanding that the prices will be going up but even if a couple hundred dollars more for this "kit" I would buy it again.

    Panel lines and panels are built in fuse as well as the stabilizer and center wing section. I will be doing a build thread on it but not sure where yet but in the meantime here are some pictures.


    Few things I need to sort out still are:

    Rivets
    electric retracts (I hate air so they are NOT an option)
    cockpit kit
    canopy rails
    scheme is pretty much settled already but not locked in
    Moki Baffle. Although I had it built for a Moki It will depend on how I can "hide" the baffle. If I can not get it to look right I would rather switch to another engine and use a dummy radial.

    Any suggestions are always welcome

    I got the same kit from Jeff about 2 months ago; I couldn't agree with you more on the craftsmanship on this bird.
    I haven't started mine yet not sure when I will get it into the build que.
    I have a DA100 I plan on putting in mine.
    I'll be watching your build.

    Hey Big Fred.
    No, I left the Gopher State over a year ago, but I returned your email back on July 20, when I mentioned the only accessories I have for my Jug would be the 108-gallon paper-impregnated early drop tank, and a scale Curtis Electric prop and hub. Sorry.

    If you have a tank available, I would take one of them. Thanks.

    Maddog,

    Have you sent your file to a kit cutter for the wing yet?

    I just got my wing prints back from Kinkos. Verify the size with the scale on the sides of the prints but be careful because on the left wing the measurement jumps from 10"-12". Someone forgot the number "11" oops.. lol. They were just about to burn me another copy before I caught the error.
