    True but the cowl is painted just have to mask off and paint the red. So it's not as far off as you might think.

    (1) 32.5% Yak 54 Needs stuffed
    (3) 40% Cap 232 1 partially built new, 2 stripped to be recovered
    (2) 35% Cap 232 one partially assembled and another needs stripped and recovered
    (3) 40% Edge 540 2 ARF need stuffed or stripped and recovered but in good shape and one that needs refurbed.

    I think that's 20 Cardens...

    I would still like to find in 100cc size a Extra 330, Yak 54, and another Cap 232 so I have some spares of those airplanes.

    Finally back to work on the yak. Cowl masked off and top painted red tonight. It was 72 here today so it made painting nice.

    Had a chance to work on the yak a bit today. The motor box had been lightened and they did a good job. But I'm not fond of the idea of the fuse being pressurized in flight. So I made some templates and cut some 1/8" filler pan 74167.jpeg 74168.jpeg els.
