Ray, I love to see your work progress it looks like an assembly line. The work puts my to shame and I want to go and hide in the closet. Shocked

Great work. Smiley

Thanks Bob, I cut all my formers by hand, they are not laser cut. More work done, one side done, started on other side and main gear wire in, I will be installing the transmission tomorrow.

Cheers, Ray K.

Ray, I just found this thread again and noticed that the former's look laser cut. If not they are the best cut out former's Ive seen yet. Great job so far, cannot wait to see the fight video.

Fuselage formers being installed, note former F4 is the mitered gear box former, see the balsa rail, both halves will have this rail, these rails will allow the gear box to slide up and down for alignment to the drive shaft, once alignment is made then it will be locked down in final position.

Cheers, Ray K.

Ok, all part masters have been made and casting has been done, even the pulleys, this will help speed up the building process on all future models, here are some pictures of finished parts. Now I can move forward and start this build this weekend.  Wink
