    Scale Nelitz 1/3 scale Cub build

    Don't know. I've had this Kevlar thread for years, don't remember why I bought it. I smeared the JB Weld on the wood and brass tube, wrapped the thread into the JB Weld then rubbed the JB Weld around the threads. Rock solid.

    Scale Nelitz 1/3 scale Cub build

    Found a mistake in my build and am resolving it this weekend. For some reason I had the wing rear pin area outside of the wing instead of inside. Not to hard to fix fortunately, just needed to find a way to extend the pin from the fuse.

    The head stock will rotate, all though I couldn't figure that out last night. So I moved the x and y handles at the same time. Just a test piece run.
