Yeah, the kitchen bench.  Can't imaging I'd be too popular with someone if I brought my model building inside the house. No!

SWEET!!! Thumbs Up  That airplane looks like it's ready to fly right off the countertop & out the kitchen window! That stab./elev. combo looks good to me. What would you change? Maybe not scale enough? I wouldn't worry about that. Make it your own Joe. Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

What a great idea. I will have to file that one away.

Why a used drier sheet? And, what did you use for glue? I would be tempted to use thinned carpenters glue rolled or brushed on and weighted down on a flat surface.

No bevel on the mating parts? Guess the pennies give proper clearance.

Thanks Guys, Bob I used a used dryer sheet because all the fabric is out of it, It bonds really well with the super glue and balsa. I will bevel where the elevators meets the stab with a folded piece of sandpaper . and yes , the pennies are just used as a spacer.

                                                                               Thanks, No Cowl on this one , The Nose Is Already Too Heavy

Is that all ply for the engine mount? Or balsa and ply? Either way you could get away with a lot less and reduce the nose weight considerably. Hope you are having fun!

Hey Ron, Yes that is a big chunk of ply, I was wondering if anyone was going to bring that up, Very Happy .I Tend to build them heavy. As it sits it is Balanced though. I just used what I had laying around the shop. I plan on cutting the next one I do in half. Thanks for the comment.
