Chic,

It looks fantastic. Really well done. I would ask you to take a look at the rudder linkage... think its going to have to change. I doubt the scale linkage will generate enough throw for a snap roll :-) hahahha... seriously, great job. I can't wait to see it in person, or to see a pic of the plane on its gear all painted in primer. Keep at it, you are getting close! -- Barrett

OK Ranger, will have my local A & P inspect the rudder linkage. I will direct the inspector to change the linkage if necessary, to ensure that this airframe "CANNOT" perform snap rolls. Can't wait to see your T-1 perform its first snap roll upon climb out. Ha,Ha. Hey - know that Shirley and I think about you very often,. Stay well and Stay safe. Chic

Ammo blisters and hatch panels with false hinging, blue position (top surface of wing near wing tips) blisters and placement for amber/green/red approach lights (need cleaned up).

Noah, again, so glad you and Larry remain supportive in this marathon build. Can you remember what type of hinges you used for the wing flaps? I think I have Klett hinges ready to install unless you guys used Robarts. Again, thanks. Chic

Scale Aileron Hinge Details. The black/gray dots are magnets. When the model is being judged, I will set them in place. When time to fly, I stow them away. Chic

Happy Father's Day to all you Fathers out there. Noah, perfect, thanks. I like the three bolt pattern you used. Of course, will follow your lead. Chic
