Default So who is building a Skyshark 109G?

I got mine as an early Christmas present. Started build on the 23rd.
Fuse is just about done and will be starting on the wings today.

Great kit.

I am. This looks to be a great kit. I am doing an online build for people to follow at [link=http://www.rcscalebuilder.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=2675&PN=1]RCScaleBuilder.com[/link]. I am a slow builder though since I have a 2 year old running around. So I build a little, go play, build a little more and go play some more.

I remember those days. My oldest (shes 21 now)used to like to help, I'd give
her a piece of balsa sheet and sandpaper. This would keep her in place and
occupied for hours.

I'll make sure and check out the build page.

Good start on the G.......

How is the ST75 fitting in the cowl?
Are you going to use the TF in cowl muffler or something else?
Any concerns on running the 2-stroke inverted?

I just fitted the 75 in the cowel and just a little of the head shows. I am a little concerned about the inverted engine, but I have had a inverted engine before on my Ju 88 Stuka and it worked very well. I am going to use the tatone muffler that is made for the ST 75, I do not think I have enough room to use the TF muffler. I'll post more picture as I progress.
