Scale 50cc Scratch Build From My Own Design Revisited

    Building season is nearly upon us here so it's about time to get going on my scratch build project again. I've had a build thread in the other place under the same name and now that I'm going to get going on it again I wanted to start a thread here. There really isn't a good category for it so I decided it fit into scale better than any of the others.

    The basic design is a vintage racer based on a P-47 cowl. I had originally drawn the airplane to be a totally scratch built 100cc size with the gear mounted in the wings. I changed the design to 50cc size with fuse mounted gear, to use a set of wings and stabs left over from a crashed Yak.

    The first posts will be pictures of the progress to date, with more following as I go. There is still some good flying weather ahead so progress may move slow.
