Looking great, Al. The detail on the lights look awesome. Not bad for a scratch-build unit. You should start selling them.

Great work Al!  Your restorations and builds put me in mind of The Aircraft Restoration Company at Duxford in England (they did the restoration work on the P 47 SNAFU).  Like you, they restore old aircraft to like new or better condition. Lots of time and lots of skill involved in every project.

New workshop looks real cool, and very full.  May have to knock out a wall to make room for the next build.

Thank guys, The positive feedback helps.

Things are a little slow. It's not that I'm not working on it.  The task at hand are the tedious ones that seem like you work away and there is little change to be seen.
However there is a bit to report. The cabane struts are well on there way.

The mounting points for some of the rigging is installed. The wires will be swapped out later for a much more scale set.

The top former f38 needs to be removed to allow the pass compartment.

Just cutting a hole to the right size and shape.
My decision to cut this hole was a long time coming.
Now it's no longer a YMF. More like a YF-3 but that door is still open.

One if the top formers did not come in contact correctly with the top panel. This will correct it.

I'm in need of the mail man to show up with parts and pieces , fastener, etc.  Kind of holding things up.

Still waiting on the mail. I really need all the hardware I've order from Micro Fastener to continue working. Tracking # shows my stuff went to New York then went to Toronto and sat there for a week. Then went back to New York, then went up to Toronto again and is sitting there. Or at least as far as I can tell. Embarrassed

Anyway here's a few pictures of an aileron. I'm finally happy with the way the wing tips look.
Man they are full of interesting angles Huh

For some reason the forum won't allow me to post pictures Lips Sealed?


This is what I get for a message.  I know what it means but its been accepting them all along.

Looks like this forum photo size maximum is set to somewhere around 700 kb Al.  Your other shots are under 700kb.

  Resize the photos to something smaller.  Your current size is 2048 by 1152.  Not sure what software you're using, but downsize making the larger side about  800.   Your phone probably has that option too.   If these are phone photos.

Additionally, the current size makes it hard for people to view them having to scroll around to see the whole photo.   Not complainign mind you, just trying to help.

That's the first thing I did.  However I may need to resize them even more.    They were going on just fine up till now, but I do agree the size was a but if a pain to look at.
