Congrats, Bargle!  Good to see Jupiter in the air!

Still negotiating with mine.  I need to make a bigger opening to get more rubber packed in. What size rubber are you using?  3/32 is a bit wimpy in mine.

I'm using a single loop of 3/16. I did make the opening in all the formers larger in mine. Not sure if I mentioned that. I did it with an emery board after I had the fuselage built, but not covered.

Bargle...ditto what CD said.  I'm not sure if you know about posting multible pictures in one post.  When you post check out the left side in the bold blue letters the "Attachments" with a plus sign in a box.  Click on the plus sign and you can add up to 6 picture attachments to a post.  Just for what it's worth!   Smiley

Ah, so that's how you do it. Thanks muchly.

And thanks to you both for the compliments.   Smiley

OK, I finally got a couple of in flight pics. Still coping with the breezy conditions, but it isn't showing any bad tendencies.

Thanks, Bob. While my weather may not have been bad, it wasn't great either. I can usually depend on there being a couple of hours of calm air right after sun-up, but I didn't get it today. The breeze was already going as soon as I got there and the other 2 planes I brought didn't go well. The Jupiter was the one bright spot.

The weather has been fighting me this year.  Angry
Seems to be happening in a lot of places.

Well, I got to make a couple of brief flights today. Conditions were breezy, but it looks promising. I goofed the only picture I managed to get. Forgot I had the camera set to close-up mode. All I got was a very fuzzy white thing above some grass.

She looks great.  As for the nose block, I usually sand it to final shape while tacked in place on the fuselage.  then dissolve the glue with some acetone and slip a razor blade in the crack between the block and fuselage.  Love the twin vertical stab empennage!

As Bob said, we look forward to flying pics.
Tom


Good tip, Tom. I'll try and remember it the next time something this small comes up.
Yes, I am pleased with the slightly modded empennage. Came out good.  Smiley

Flight pics when they happen.

And another angle. What went wrong? You can see the #44 on the wing. I hadn't planned to include it, but when I was putting on the dope, something old in the brush decided to dissolve and leave a dark blotch on the tip. I put the number on to cover it up.
You can't see it in the pics (because I was careful to hide it), but the noseblock shape isn't quite right. The thing is so small, I had trouble holding it while I was trying to shape it. It's functional, but it ain't pretty.
Also I either made the prop too big or the landing gear leg too short, because the prop can't spin while it's sitting on the ground. No ROGs for this one.  Embarrassed

Anyway, it's done!
