Check out this flying family a fellow from the UK made for his electric indoor Piper Tri-Pacer. Found on HPA.

Made from white foam.  Amazing. Click Here

Sounds like you've got a well thought out plan for the interior.  With Huey as mentor/observer, you'll have a winner.  I believe I mentioned that the rear seats had a unique feature with the arm rests.  They were recessed into the cabin side walls.  Ribbons should make excellent seat belts.

well - I do plan on putting a cooler in the cabin. Damn thing is so spacious and visible with all that glazing I have to do something besides seats and a panel. There should be a backpack or duffel bag, fishing tackle with a box and two rods, and maybe a dog companion for the pilot all in there when I button it up - we'll see

HW, your seats reminded me of a trip. A friend wanted to fly to Oshkosh with the Stinson, he'd pay for the gass and oil. I said "Sure". "What do we need? Camping gear?" I said "Yep and a big cooler".
He showed up with a big cooled that was 1950's vintage, it held two cases of Bud Light and ice. It just fit on the floor in front of the rear seat. Thank goodness, it was hot that year.

Tom, usually when I'm in the store I'm thinking 'airplane parts' and then I forget to grab the damn tomatos...
Funny how useful all that useless packaging material can be to a model builder..

LWM, the disney dog is not quite what I want to use but maybe I can improvise..

Nice job...always looking at things to see if I might use it in modeling.  If not for a part, maybe a mold for plunge or vacuum forming.

Way to think out of the box.

here it is assembled - I will probably wrap the kit cowling with the styrene ring to make it fit more snugly inside my outer forward cowling section..

It has a vacuform cowling forward section and a sheet of styrene that you cut to a plan pattern for the rear section of the cowl. There is a former that mates to the fuselage front end to secure the rear ring and then you slip the forward cowling over that. I am going to modify the plan slightly and use the kit vacuform cowling as the engine mount and slide a cowling that I made by cutting the bottom off of an aspirin bottle - it fits over the aftermarket engine better than the vacuform piece.

Very nice job.  How does the engine mount on the fuselage?   Smiley

the motor is complete and the fuselage has been completely infilled and has been sanded with the first layer of spackle -
as you see in this image of the motor (ParkFlyer Products) I have the cylinders wrapped with copper clad thread to simulate the cylinder cooling fins. Also the wiring is in place - the push rods are not yet installed here but can be seen in the other image with the cowling set in place...

New Builder - I'm still sad about your Ryan

Heywooood - I'm a bit mixed on my feelings about the Ryan. Certainly not the outcome I had hoped for but in light of the mistakes I made and the way the wings were mounted made for a very tenuous assembly process. I'm contemplating rebuilding the fuse using a keel instead of a truss and should be able to reduce the parts count by at least 50% and make a different wing mount system. My laminating has improved also so it will look and build better.
