Well, a little update. The fuselage has now been assembled. The pylon was also just assembled tonight. All that is left to do with it is to cut out and glue on a firewall as the one supplied is not designed for a Cox engine, and the instructions on the plans state the size of firewall to make. So, once that is made and installed, hopefully tomorrow evening, I would like to try my best and sand the pylon so I can install it before the deepest of winter sets in here. Once installed, I can at least cover it. And also weather permitting, I may also attempt to get the tail sanded as well, but no guarantees on that one. Hopefully, it will all go well with balance and such, as I am now planning on powering this with a Golden Bee.....

Well, between other stuff and such, not much more progress has been done. I would definately like to get the engine pylon sanded to shape and fuselage sanded before the real winter sets in here so I can at least cover it while it is cold and ugly outside and also while we are on lockdown. After I get the engine pylon and fuselage sanded, my goal is to use a water based something and apply tissue to it all for a basecoat. This is one option to save on doping everything a few times followed by sanding and doping then color. My thought is that teh tissue will allow me to use only a coat or two of something to seal it before painting. But I have some reading to do on this subject now.... Anyways here it is as it now sits. I would like to do more, but the wing and tail do require more and more careful sanding which I am not fond of doing in the winter.

Hey again. Yes, I did run the Golden Bee and it is a very nice mild mannered runner! I do wholeheartedly plan on it being up on the nose, but the final assembly will dictate that depending on balance. As for the leading and trailing edges, yes, they are to be cut off and sanded. I just cut them near their centers and joined them as per the plan, and left the outer edges to cut and sand later. The centers of bothe wing panels were also like that but had to cut them to join them. Also, sure I was a bit lazy to cut them off too... Laughing

Well, better late than never. So after I was questioned in my thread on another forum about this plane, I had as I said in another topic got off my butt here to go do some sanding.

OMG! I now have much more respect for the old timers that had built these planes back in the day, and the quality of their work. I just did as I said and went out to sand the tail surfaces of the Viking. Now I cannot say for sure if the wood has dried over the years, but I now know and understand a hand plane would definately be a big help in sanding for covering! Think square LE! Next time I will use it on the wing LE, thats for sure. The wing is just big, and I am already dreading it after the tail..... But I guess it has to be done. Maybe tomorrow.....

I would post pictures, but really, nothing has changed other than the ends sticking out the ends as Eric pointed out above, and the block on the tips were sanded quite a bit away when sanding to shape. And the square LE is now tapered to the lower edge. While fine sanding, I nicked a couple of the rib tops making me go glue them back up, but it is minor.
