    test fitting the LG...I made the wheel covers from 1/64"thick bitch ply laminated with 1/16" thick sheet balsa.

    I'll need to use filler and sand them down to remove the wood grain - also to be sure they don't keep the gear from retracting fully into the wheel wells

    inching closer to completion. I'm still working on the LG doors and need to attach the prop blades to the hub. They are done, just need to be glued into place.

    just a quick note: I started a youtube channel today and posted my first video there..Heywood Planes

    it'll take me a while to build content but I plan to do all of my builds going forward under a GoPro camera and put them up. I have to get a clamp for the camera and as soon as it comes I'll be able to do the elapsed time vids and tips and tricks
    tutorials etc.. For now all I have is an introductory vid as to what the channel is for.

    If this information is considered promotional or out of line I will remove this post or understand if it is taken down..

    "work work work..."

    Looks to be well worth the time spent.

    Even my very brief foray back into 'plastics' was enjoyable, despite the reason for doing so.
    Been dusting off a few of my unfinished small scale car scratch build projects, I have an itch for some CNC milling and a spicing of miniature panel beating that needs to be scratched!
    I might even get this finished by year's end.

    so here is a typical Lycoming R-680-11 radial engine.


    I am modifying this Williams Bros 1/12" scale P&W Wasp to look just like it (hopefully)


    ..that's the plan anyway..

    the waist band.. the center of all three stripes will be red

    a little more progress - the upper wing is not fixed into position just yet..just getting a sense of the overall effect so far, and you can see how big she is..
    most of the planes I have built this way are 1/24" scale or 1/16" scale...this is 1/12" scale or 1" = 1'

    I'll begin working on the outer wing struts and aileron push-rods over the next few days.

    Once those are complete and installed, then the upper wing can go on - probably I'll fit the windscreens before I affix the wing..then the rigging and so on

    Meanwhile - I'll be masking and adding the red stripes to the chevron and waist band, as well as finishing off the rudder colors

    Quick question : I canít decide whether to remove the forward cockpit cover and install a windscreen for it.. or leave it covered and only install a windscreen for the rear position. There is already a seat, panel, and control stick in there so its an easy option - I just cannot make the windscreens removable with my current skillset.
    Any show of hands either way will help me decide while Iím putting the engine together
    and thank you to all who have viewed this thread and or offered encouragement over the years
    Thank You

    decals applied - rigging completed - I'm using card stock as a template to fabricate the windscreen..once I have it as I want it, Ill lay it over the clear acetate and make the part, then mask and paint it
