Per chance did you check out the Don Smith Hellcat cowl for size? Smith has a plan for a 1/6 scale Hellcat so it has to be pretty close, no?

Go ahead and send it Dale. Once I've got the machine and get it set up the drop tank might be a good learning project. There will most likely not be any need for the internal structure on a printed...

The airplane looks fantastic ledd4u. The US national insignia is rather more complicated than it looks and it's a lot easier to get wrong than it is to get right! Yours are not glaringly out of...

The glue template is laser cut from vinyl Dale. Just stick it on, add glue, remove it and throw it away and grab another one off the sheet. I am VERY fortunate to have a laser cutter, something...

I appreciate the kind comments Dale but it is only about 10% skill. The other 90% is simply being willing to put in the time and effort. Just about anybody can do it if they have the "want to"....

Beautiful work as always Dale. I do have one question. Why not open up the wheel wells to the scale shape?

Nothing wrong with 2-56 so long as you are happy with the finished appearance. I think it will be fine on a model this size. As for the drilling/tapping I simply bored a pilot hole with the laser...

I think your solution sounds perfect Dale. Just like the real deal really, no need to change it as I think the design of the full size will work fine scaled down. May have to beef up where the...

Dale, I can laser cut G10 up to 1/16" thick which works well for making hinges such as those found on the Hellcat's ailerons. If you need something custom made to suit your build just say the word.

I can't see exactly how much "nip and tuck" you need Dale but might it be easier to change the shape of the front of the fuselage rather than the cowl? Also, if you open up the cowl flaps for...
