    Summer is over. My poor DHC-2 has been neglected!!

    Recently cut the opening for the engine cooling through the dummy radial.

    painted it via rattle can and masking tape. The more I look at it, the more it needs pushrods. Who knows, maybe ignition leads...

    I still have to finish my super otter floats, but that's just a pre-courser to me making a set for this airframe. Still on the back burner, but it's getting close to being tackled on the work bench again.

    Starting to tie up some loose ends. Sanded the leading edge of the horizontal, fitted the elevators in place, drilled hinge holes, fitted, and then sanded to make the counterbalances match the leading edge of the horizontal. Note there is a bit of a gap for the sea fins to be installed. There sure was a lot of sanding to get the counter balances to look uniform and follow the outline like it should. But worth the effort. Next I need to utilize the elevator joiner or make my own. Slight debacle but I’ll explain that later.
