So I've been working on it for about a month and this is my total progress.

Edit: I was just looking at this picture thinking about how bare the center sections look without their sheeting applied...

And here it is prior to sheeting. Look close and you will see how I bonded ply plates to structurally connect the two main cross member parts (F117 and F124). This requires sanding the faces of the...

But the bottom center section is whole other beast. It's very busy and the best way I found to figure out how it all goes together is to dry-assemble it. One can almost entirely assemble it without...

And now we continue on to the top wing center section, which doesn't really call for much comment. Pretty straight forward.

And finally, with respect to the wings: the plans seem to make it pretty clear that the top of the top wings get sheeted on the OUTSIDE of the ribs, which would keep the covering from being able to...

I added some little triangles to the aileron and wing balsa corners. It really strengthens these important areas for when the covering starts pulling on them.

If I had to do the fitting of the ailerons all over again this is roughly what I would do. First thing I would do is sand the leading edges of the ailerons themselves about 2mm larger than final...

Here is something I'd like to pass along. Because the ailerons are swept, the geometry of their swing moves their hinge parts into the wing hinge parts creating interference (you'll see what I mean)....

Now for the fun part (NOT!!): fitting the ailerons. This is where Jan's build thread went silent and I think I know why. Because there is no good way to do it. I will explain, more or less how I did...

One last thing I will mention about the wing build: I couldn't figure out how JW wanted the outboard leading edge spar to join the plywood wing tip part. You can see in the pic that the wing tip...

I don't think the wings need much comment except to say you only get a right side plan view of the wing to build over. Jan used "salad oil" (at least that's what Google Translator called it) to make...

This is how I fixed the oversized sheer-webs. I cut them out and stacked them. Then I sandwiched them between a pair of 1/2x3 boards on my milling machine table. Then I carefully machined off...

In this pic you see the wing parts all cut out of their sheets and layed out. Plan on spending a day or two just on this process. Upper left you can see the 1mm sheer-web sheets. One is perfect,...

Thoroughly modern CNC design and execution. The kit practically falls together and is a LOT of fun to build.
Fantastic wood quality. It isn't easy finding so much good wood without a lot of...

JW Büker Jungmeister build

The main reason I'm posting this build is because the first thing I did when I got the kit home was search for prior builds. Maybe they're out there but I sure couldn't find them. The only real...

Robert, the engine only requires one of those cam drive gears to drive the cam ring. I'd say they put the other one in there for balance. Kind of nice of them. It's cheaper/simpler to make them...

Jake, you'll need a 19mm (for the 250, 23mm for the 300) deep well socket to get the hub nut off (standard right hand threads).

Moki Cam Grease

I have alway HATED the idea of grease in the cam chamber of these Moki radials, so early on I decided to clean the grease out and run heavy synthetic gear lube. No where in the world will you see...
