Thanks Levent, but your way too kind. There are many flaws and photo's too can be kind. But, without your help and your excellent drawings it would be nothing at all. I doubt if I would even have attempted it.

That said, I have had a lot of fun putting this thing together. Smile

Just a FYI, it's never good to paint the firewall when using a integral tanked bee. Eventually and inevitably, the fuel eats away the paint directly at the screened area and the engine sucks in paint flakes which don't happily go through the engine. They get stuck in the reed and causes a real headache. A thinned layer of epoxy is superior because it will not only make the wood resistant to oil and fuel but it hardens the screw hole area and prevents oil migration. Luan needs all the help it can get as it's very porous and it's composition of layers is considerably soft.

Good point Ken, and another reason I did not paint the mount. Right now it has three coats of sanding sealer on it, sanded between coats. Will probably get another before I mount the engine. Thinned epoxy would be best but doubt I will go there.

Looking good Bob…The white base really ties things together… Excellent work!!… I used Magnolia white acrylic craft paint just ghosted on with a really dry brush to keep the weight down on this low power set up…. Trim is Rustoleum metallic silver…. Still fiddling with the control rod and timer…Also have to make the canopy…The "Silver Lining" a start - Page 4 7d1c0f10

Beautiful Robert, I'm sending mine down to you for final finishing. Smile

No kidding, I love the dusted finish. It just fits this model! and..........you don't have to worry about fuel goofing it all up! Can't wait to see how you do the canopy.
