Default Gobsmacked!

English expression = stunned, amazed! The details are really showing - panels I assume you’ve painted with just slightly different shades, panel lines, rivets. Brilliant!

Default Heading to the field?

Ready to rock ‘n roll! It looks amazing. Photos and video of the maiden to come …. Including the engine sound system? (You’re photos have helped me significantly and I am just starting on the wing fairings.

I would like to add a BIG THANK YOU for your photo expose. There have been several points in the build that were challenging and your photos helped significantly. However the nose and cowl was truly significant. I left it late to rebuild the nose based on motor choice compared to your chronology - and could have saved myself some effort had I recognized your approach earlier. That said, your design for the cowl access and structuring has proven invaluable. I’ve finished restructuring the nose for my chosen electric motor (a big shout out to Jim Kitt and his StinGR 120 solution) and all but finished work on the cowl. I had intended a different design for access to batteries and realized your approach was much (MUCH) better for electric power and battery access.
