Bob you lamented a post or three back about it being a porky pig bondo queen (my interpretation) and yes the resurrected good looking rebuild may be a tad FAT

But you might be pleasantly surprised at how she may flies just as a fun sport-about with smooth engine and proper propeller

Turn on a dime combat wing snappy....probably not..... but I have a few too large WS 1/2As that are a tad "fat" that fly very tamely and balanced a little nose heavy float around 3/4 lap after engine off and land nice and flat

I bet this remodel turns out to be one of your favorites

Your interpretation is spot on Fred, maybe a bit heavier than normal for a scout, but no bulkier.  I can see why these are so popular for stunt.  But I have no idea as to how this one will behave.  The previous builder modified it to accept that Enya .06 by installing a fuel tank over the CG and moving the firewall to the rear.  All the plans I have seen beg for a Cox tanked engine.  

But, we have a problem.  I tried to bench test the Enya this afternoon and soon determined something was wrong.  I thought I had filled the crankcase with fuel while fueling the external tank without first closing the needle valve.  Hydraulic lock to the maximum.

When I removed the backplate I found this:

It's not the reed C clip, that's a much larger clip and it's still in place.  Maybe the former owner left a little time bomb for the next victim.  Anyway, I never did get it to run.

Bob, my first guess as to what that ring clip might be is the retainer for a ball and socket con-Rod to piston connection? Have you removed the cylinder and piston to inspect them? Huh...

Yes,  I thought the same thing, but the piston goes up and down and I can't find it on the parts diagram.  But I'm going to look at it a little closer as that's about the only possibility.  I found it wrapped around the con rod after all.  I do have another Enya .06 that I can use, I would just have to swap the mount.  

Yes Eric,  I googled the scout and found pictures that must have originated with Kim and others here.  There is an unbuilt kit on ebay that has been running for some time, but at $79 I'm not a buyer.

Yup, it was the con rod retainer ring. Got it back in but if it came out once it will probably come out again. Bench run test soon.

Got some frog tape and painters tape to trim the Scout. I'm not sure which I will use, hope it doesn't lift the existing finish.

Maybe I should have used the frog tape Eric, but I couldn't find it, used quick release instead. Lot's of bleed through. I tried to duplicate the original builders paint scheme. Decided on wind shield instead of the canopy, this way I get to use the original head rest.

It balances well and should fly just fine. Any whooo, it's a done deal.

You have an incredible amount of patience to be able to or even think about performing such a restoration.

I would look at a box of broken bits and just see a box of broken bits!

I use Frog tape - here in the UK there are two types - a yellow one and a green one. The green one is stickier than the yellow one, neither of them allow paint to bleed but the green one will pull paint up. So I tend to use the yellow one.
