Well friends, I am one step away from finishing this beauty, I share some photos here.
It remains then to place an on-board battery pack, key on off, control the CG and everything would be ready for the initial flight.

I have made the plug for the Norvel motor in grilon and brass, so that way I can get perfectly comfortable to it.

Mauricio I cannot really add to what others and I have already said. Beautiful. And thanks for adding the Hungarian flag to the video lining up most of the flags of members' countries! Argentina would deserve to be at the first place there but I appreciate your modesty.👍

I cannot wait to see your maiden flight and wish you happy takeoff and landing! 🛫🛬

Very "dramatic", and nicely timed to the music.  Not only are you skilful at building and flying, but also video production Thumbs Up

Hello Friends, I appreciate the comments to all of you, thank you for accompanying the project and taking the time to leave me your comments.
I send everyone a big hug from here and I leave you a video with the test of the engine installed in the model, verifying that the fuel tank and the engine itself, transmit confidence of march. There will be more news .... greetings !! I Love This Forum! Small Cox Logo I Love This Forum!

Thanks for your inconvenience András!
The engine is at those 16350/16470 averages
The propeller is Argentina, a factory that no longer exists: AS 6 x 4 hard material.
