Pretty close, I have to make the aileron rods, set the throws and it can be ran to set the pipe.
I come in right at 7 pounds

The colors are probably not for everyone, and I'm not really sure myself but here's the deal............

I don't build stuff to look at it............... or admire setting in the pits area at the flying field.

I build stuff to fly, always and often, so I need to be able to see it, the color scheme has to be visible.
My concern is if I can see it at 2000 feet away or on a long final for a landing approach.
I think this ole gal will look great in the air.......................................

Ready for a little wax on that fine covering job to slick it up real nice and see how fast it will go.
Another good looking airplane added to the hanger...

I sure have appreciated the 2 builds of yours which you have shared recently. It takes me back in time but I in no way could attest to being such an efficient builder as you. To you I raise my hat and glass. Thank you for being willing to bare you're all, with us all.

I'm waiting on a pull switch to come in the mail and then it's ready.
I'll get her up fairly soon if the weather holds up............................

Default Nice one Rich

Remember when you could buy any width header from Mac's website to match your fuselage? A header and pipe cost more today than the engine itself. It's now a hobby of improvisation, and what Dave Platt called years ago, the principle of scarfology.
