    Ever time I see that plane I love it. And it is what I call a proper scratch build. Boy if only you had the time and or the will to do that plane again larger so tha you could install a 250 radial into it.. I would at your door begging for the drawings so that I could also build one.

    I did some planking around the nose. It turned out okay. I could have done better I think.

    While I was removing the plans from the bench tonight, I placed the fuse in its foam stand on the floor. My son pointed out that there's a significant lean to the left for all of the tail formers. It turns out the tail is twisted a few degrees. I wasn't able to see it before. It's very discouraging to see it now. I believe it has to do with the modifications to some of the formers between the wing and tail.

    With the sheeting in place, therest no easy way to twist it out. I may be able to get away with removing some sheeting, but it'll be a chore.

    No pics. It's embarrassing.

    Dang. Hopefully you will find a way to straighten it.

    It can be done. It's just one more thing...
