Thanks friend!..
balsa slats on the side of the fuselage and below the fuselage are indicated in the plan. They simulate the structure of the real plane once covered.

ok, we are going with the manufacture of the main train, from an aluminum alloy sheet...

Well ... then we already have a main train. Smile
The shoes or wheel covers are very nice, but on the grass they are locked when taking off, so I will surely leave it that way, that is, without shoes.

Betty's Little Stinker had just the windscreen.  This is a photo of a painting of her and both Little Stinkers taken at the Wright Brothers Museum in Kittyhawk, NC.  Worth the admission if you ever get there.  The length of the Brothers first flight is amazingly short for the the magnitude of it's importance.

Thank you!!! Dave for that information ... I will also start reading about Betty, I like the general history of everything that has to do with aviation. Thanks for the valuable contribution.
I would like to know some place in the USA, it is a country that I admire, so maybe sometimes I know about the possibility of traveling .... thanks for the advice.

Okay, I said NO, but I really like this model as it evolves, so I made a matrix to make a prototype wheel cover, I have painted it red just to see what it looks like...
I really like how it looks, and I will try to use them in the club, although for the grass, they will be a problem ... but I will see that in due course.

Well, after evaluating how these shoes look, then I made a new pair and left them "crystal", that is, transparent since I don't know how I'm going to decorate the model yet, so painting them will come later.

Remove the "belly" of the fuselage taking care to weld the rods to a piece of raft in order to maintain the original position, there the lower wing will be housed there and these rods may have to be placed in the structure of the wing to continue the fuselage line.

New Flight: Pitts -Skelton Aerobatic model  (page 9) - Page 2 Dsc03822
New Flight: Pitts -Skelton Aerobatic model  (page 9) - Page 2 Dsc03823

Put the upper wing supports to check that the fit is correct, and everything seems to be perfectly in place, perhaps a minimal adjustment, but for now everything is fine.

Okay, take a few hours and I have finally shaped the uprights of the upper wing.
You can turn the uprights one by one to the left or right as you need to correct the incidence and you will get exactly the incidence of the upper wing you want.
You can vary the trailing edge, or you can vary the leading edge or both depending on how useful it is to apply.
The result is much better than I expected, it really works.
I have zeroed out the top wing using this test template.
Also heat-shrink each stud for a better look, which I will later replace with the final one.
I will continue in process ....

I place a 3mm x 1mm carbon strip on the rudder (fixed part), this is to ensure that there are no ripples, by the way it is completely rigid:
New Flight: Pitts -Skelton Aerobatic model  (page 9) - Page 2 Dsc03852
New Flight: Pitts -Skelton Aerobatic model  (page 9) - Page 2 Dsc03853

These woods that I place there are to generate an equal surface between the rods and the exit hole of the control. This is necessary because when covering with material, there should be no depression in that sector:
New Flight: Pitts -Skelton Aerobatic model  (page 9) - Page 2 Dsc03857
New Flight: Pitts -Skelton Aerobatic model  (page 9) - Page 2 Dsc03858

New Flight: Pitts -Skelton Aerobatic model  (page 9) - Page 2 Dsc03861

Okay, so I'm going to remove the Cowl from the engine, so that everything is really practical to mount and operate ... the photos show the process:
New Flight: Pitts -Skelton Aerobatic model  (page 9) - Page 2 Dsc03854
New Flight: Pitts -Skelton Aerobatic model  (page 9) - Page 2 Dsc03855
New Flight: Pitts -Skelton Aerobatic model  (page 9) - Page 2 Dsc03856

I need to make a tool to sand and undercut the inside of the Cowl, so here I made this tool for the hand lathe or "Dremel":
New Flight: Pitts -Skelton Aerobatic model  (page 9) - Page 2 Dsc03862
New Flight: Pitts -Skelton Aerobatic model  (page 9) - Page 2 Dsc03863
New Flight: Pitts -Skelton Aerobatic model  (page 9) - Page 2 Dsc03864

Interior sanding process, works perfect!:
New Flight: Pitts -Skelton Aerobatic model  (page 9) - Page 2 Dsc03865
New Flight: Pitts -Skelton Aerobatic model  (page 9) - Page 2 Dsc03866

Silkspan and dope paper, to give strength and seal at a very low weight as well!:
New Flight: Pitts -Skelton Aerobatic model  (page 9) - Page 2 Dsc03910
New Flight: Pitts -Skelton Aerobatic model  (page 9) - Page 2 Dsc03911

Adjustments to the air intakes and motor plate outlet:
New Flight: Pitts -Skelton Aerobatic model  (page 9) - Page 2 Dsc03912
New Flight: Pitts -Skelton Aerobatic model  (page 9) - Page 2 Dsc03913

I build a "false F1" in 1.5 mm thickness, the purpose is to compensate the wood that has been removed by the saw when cutting the Cowl and also generate anchors for dowels that will support the Cowl later screwed:

New Flight: Pitts -Skelton Aerobatic model  (page 9) - Page 2 Dsc03917
New Flight: Pitts -Skelton Aerobatic model  (page 9) - Page 2 Dsc03918

Then I make the necessary adjustments for the motor housing and its muffler:
