No, this is not the old Aerotech molds. Sorry. Same size though...
I do have the cross piece for the chin divider, but not the two downward slanting fins.

I love that Hellcat! I am also a BIG fan of all the CATS. I have been trying to find a nice glass fuzed Hellcat for a while. I didn't much like anything out there...till now

Keep us informed about the progress.

Jeff, appreciate what you said about my Hellcat. I really have to take more pics and post them. The photos of the fuse really don't show the detail.

Ron, I'm glad to hear you like my Jug. Just let me know when you might want to build one.

Do you all have an owner's manual/construction guide and /or DVD that I could order to look over?
Thanks

Hi, Al

You must have been reading my mind. As of the moment, I do not have available a construction manual/CD, but that is going to be my next development. I promise to have more available in the very near future.[sm=drowning.gif]

Great, Jeff
If you'll let me know when they're available I'd like to order whatever you've got to study them. From what I can see, your kit looks really great and I'm very interested.
Thanks
Al

Hi guys,

Here are a few pics of the "infrastructure" of the wing. The parts are all interlocked together and hot glued while in the wing mold. Then the whole structure is attached to the bottom of the wing with poly resin and mat. I am having all my parts cut by The Aeroplane Factory, and John does a wonderful job!

Here are a few more pics of the wing ready for the top half to be attached. I like to use Hysol 9420 for this part. This makes for one heck of a strong wing!

Hi Jeff:
I am so glad to see you adding these great birds at a great price, When do you expect the Hellcat release, and can you get a P-47 now

Thank you, Dave

Hi, Dave,

I appreciate your interest! The Hellcat won't be available for a few months yet, but at this time I will be making a list of folks that want a Jug, and when ready to ship I will let them know in the order they came in. I am waiting on my kit-cut parts right now, and when they arrive, I should be able to start putting orders together.

Thanks again!

Jeff

One-fifth....just like Nick Z. Most parts should be interchangeable.
