Hey Boyd,

Will do my best to have it ready for next summer/fall.

Need to order more rivets from Chad for the wing and fuse.My kids got me a Bavarian Demon Cortex for Xmas last year but a couple of guys in the club found some for a lot less $$$. They have them in cubs and high wing planes that are ARFS.I did some searching on youtube but I still need to find out about the up and down position.After hours of work getting the canopy to line up I need to start on the wind screen, my friend has a vacuum table and he will make it for me once I get the plug made ☹

Larry,

Could I get you to pull 2 wind screen canopies for me also. Just let me know the cost.

Thanks.

Boyd.

Boyd,
No problem... I have to get some balsa blocks this week to make the plug.

Well alright - that T-28 is getting its "Glass House" together. That canopy requires a lot of cockpit work, no where to hide with all that glass. Great work Larry, my deadline is May. Got to fly the Avenger numerous times before going to the Nats with it. Stay well and Stay safe guys. Chic

Hey guys,
PROGRESS!!!!!!!! Fuse glassed, waiting for 2nd coat of resin to dry so I can start sanding... I know now about the corn starch but any recommendations as to grit and type?
If I can get my daughter to move her car out of the garage today I can get back to redoing the throttle and choke rods on the Avenger.
I'm thinking of redoing all the servo extensions since it looks like a rats nest where they plug into the receiver

Looking real good Larry. Can't wait to see the Trojan (and Avenger) at the flying field eventually. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you guys!

Okay guys,
Slow progress, fuse primed and waiting for sanding with 400 grit sandpaper. Laid up balsa blocks to start working on plug for the windscreen, going to be a slow process

Okay guys,
Started the Windscreen Plug, needs a bit more sanding and have to add a bit to the bottom of the plug.
Hopefully will get to vacuum form it within the next 2 weeks

Hey Larry - Is this T-28 designed for instrument training only. The pilot can't see through that balsa block. Ha, Ha. Glad to continue seeing your progress. Painting the Avenger cockpits and turret opening today (Bronze Green, and Interior Green) inside the shop. Smile. Chic

Chic,
Need to make progress on the Trojan, I hear there is another build in my future
BTW, got the extension for the gyro and if I can convince the wife to get her car out of the garage today I might be able to work on it
Plan is to have the Avenger ready for March
