Default RE: C/L What's New?

ORIGINAL: Kiwi

...George's first two Streaks, one of which he had kept for about 25 years hanging in his shop rafters, had a LONGER nose. He used a BH Fox Combat Special, which he said was the worst vibrating engine he'd ever had any experience with, and thought the shorter nose would be less prone to falling into any wasteful harmonics . .
Before going into production, he drew up a plan for the kit to have the nose length that it ended up having (about 5 1/8" from LE to tip of the nose - amounting to an inch less than the pair of prototypes). The only major departure from George's plan he ever referred to was the pretty routed out LE/TE assembly (seems to me the spar arrangement actually did differ some, but he never remarked on that aspect that I recall)...

Thanks for setting it straight Kiwi, Guess I remembered it incorrectly.
