    Yup. Look up the 'Lenape Papoose'. A 50hp 3 cylinder radial hanging onto the front of a J3. I have a Busa 1/4 scale cub in a box. I bought a twin 160 4 stroke boxer for it. But the Saito 33cc 3 cyl radial still stays in my head, sooo maybe that's what it will be. I still don't know until I'm really in the build.

    Trying finishing epoxy to stick the interior lining to balsa.

  3. Surely that should work
     
  4. Have you tried regular white Elmers glue?

    I'll try Elmer's.
     
  6. Cool. I was just thinking since Elmer’s dries clear, anything that bleeds through the fabric shouldn’t be to noticeable. Keep us posted.

    The backside of this canvas is a problem as I have another fail. The canvas peeled off like Peel ply or something. I might consider getting a different fabric. 1631230783147884251377.jpg

    Stuck at the house for a couple of weeks, wife tested positive a few days before me so I'm now banished to the basement. Let's see, my own bathroom, kitchen, pool table, 2 big screens and my hobby room. :banana-dance:

    Back on the Cub. Working on wing strut clamps. Cut, sand, drill and I decided to blue them. I can always paint them later.

    Waiting on new interior cabin cloth so switched back to wings. I left leading edge wood for a slow day. Like today.
