I purchased a Ziroli Cowl before I received my replacement from James. Ziroli cowl can be cut back at proper match line and used as a replacement if needed. The hood part could be retained with some mods to fuselage. Note hood matches fuselage panel lines. Interesting !!!??

The main gear doors and inner gear doors don't fit very well. They overlap and leave a gap between the doors and wing surface. Do you notice any flutter from the doors not mating into the wing (flush)??

Have not mounted mine yet as I wanted to just make last flyins of our season. I did notice that there would be a gap but have not dealt with it yet.
If memory works, I believe I was going to fabricate the main strut covers out of aluminum to contour to wing. The originals are too flat but may be able to be modified.

I am going with a micro servo for the tail wheel steering. Looks like the servo will mount right on the tail gear linkage...

How did you end up configuring the rudder. Just pic one up at the AMA show this weekend...

I used a GWS mini servo in my tailwheel assembly which fit perfect using the aluminum tapped bar and parts provided. Has held up with about a dozen plus flights last fall.
Used Hitech 645M servo on rudder, again using parts provided. Will check but I believe I reversed the rudder control horn.
Photos attached today. I did reverse the rudder horn which worked perfect with linkage provided so it had to be intended that way.
