    Dean,
    Please accept my deepest condolences to you and your wife, can't even imagine what you're going through.
    Must be ESP that you posted as I was getting ready to post that I have the leading edge affixed and sanded so I partially sheet the first wing half. Grandkids coming tuesday for 10 days sure that will cut into my build time.
    Finally have the avenger 95% painted and started working on the servo setups.

    You are in my prayers

    It's about 120 miles Larry. Green Valley is a retirement community about 18 miles south of Tucson on RT. 19. I have been through Gilbert a half dozen times on my way to Apache Junction to compete in the scalemasters trials.

    Dean,
    Would love to hook up with you and do Pima and or the boneyard when I finally get there, will be nice to talk scale aircraft with someone. Thanks to my build buddy I will be bringing the avenger as well as my Trojan and a 1.20 pitts, the wife told me I could only take 3 and buy new when I get there. Oh boy is she going to be sorry

    Have to pick up some sand to weight the wineskins, hoping to Agee hours in while the grandkids are sleeping...lol

    RE: T-28 Dave Platt

    Larry I've been through the museum and bone yard a dozen times with a neighbor who is a docent there and former F-104 pilot and always look forward to doing it again. I came out to Arizona towing a 25 foot RV after visiting here on vacation 6 times. I hauled 2 models in the RV and 6 months later drove back to Syracuse NY picked up my model trailer and hauled 6 more models across the country. Seeing my grandchildren again was the only positive thing that happened this past week.

    I had to look it up too when I first heard it. My neighbor Bud is a voluntary worker who acts as a guide at the Pima museum which is a discription of the word docent. I Hope to have images of the landing lights installed tomarrow.

    RE: T-28 Dave Platt

    I have the landing lights installed and tested. I had to modify the prototype to clear the leading edge and the top sheeting. I shortened the arm and lowered the point where the ball length is attached. The front end of rib 13 was cut off and moved to the inside to make space for the light.

    RE: T-28 Dave Platt

    Dean
    Thanks for sharing your landing light details. I have been following the T-28 thread for some time. I am building a Z D-18 and had made up a similar landing light. When I saw your photos I decided to rip mine out and build yours in. I have one side almost complete and am started on the other side. My light is actuated by the flap deployment. I will post a couple of photos here when I get them finished.

    Boyd, I have been posting in the "Scratch Building" forum with a guy about the Tracker. You should join in.

    Charlie,
    I agree with you about deans landing light, awesome design. Can you post the link for the scratch building forum would love to follow along.
    Hoping to have the wing on the Trojan totally laid up by the weekend, 1 side complete 2nd side 75% done, have to attach leading and trailing edge and set the washout, then I can start on the landing light.
    Looks like we will have avenger start July 14th, I posted to the avenger site last night, we are getting really close.

    RE: T-28 Dave Platt

    Charlie,
    Thanks for the link, some great info.
    Okay guys having a slight problem here. The hardwood blocks for the wing bolts are only 7/16" thick and the plans show them as 5/8", did you guys have the same problem and if so how did you solve it. Also the plans call for 2 full depth blocks behind the gear rails but I couldn't find them in the kit...
    But as promised here are the pix of the build in it's current state

    RE: T-28 Dave Platt

    First Charlie I am glad I could be of some help with the landing lights.

    Larry, I cut my own parts and what I did for the wing holdown blocks is to cut out the top view of the block on the plan glue it to a piece of hardwood the proper depth and cut it out.

    I don't remember having that problem. It may have been the custom cutter. Dean has a good solution.
