    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.

    So......

    As of today the Cardens I have:

    (1) 35% Extra 330s flying
    (1) 35% Extra 300s half framed
    (1) 30% Extra 300s nib but wings and tail sheeted
    (2) 40% Extra 330s one ARF and One stripped for recovering
    (2) 37.5% Yak 54 Needs cowl painted and stuffed other needs canopy finished and stuffed.
    (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.
    (3) 35% Edge 540 1 project, one framed out and just needs finished and 1 NIB kit
    (1) 41% Giles G202

    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.
