Bob, I am duly impressed with your building skills Wink  The Lil' Toot is looking oh so sweet. One thing I truly like is your ability to pull off a color scheme and simplistic lettering that makes the whole plane really snap! It's all so satisfying  Smiley
Wonderful job!

Tom the plans did not give me any choice due to how the wing is attach then the bottom stringers are attached.

Bob...the cowl cheeks are looking very good.  I must admit that I've never covered a plane with tissue in that manner.  Interesting approach.   Smiley

I worked on the cheeks and they are ok, but not the best since I got tired of planing and sanding.

While covering the nose and back of the fuselage, I noticed that I forgot to install the landing gear (not the sharpest knife in the drawer Cheesy)

Thanks, Neal for the kind words, but the photos don't really tell the whole story of how she looks.

I'm bumpin my head on the cheek cowls and getting them to mate up with the nose. Roll Eyes

That was funny Neal Grin. This airplane is taking too much time with all of the cheek cowl carving and sanding. Not much fun.

The nose peice is taking longer than I use to working on an airplane. Its four peices of 3/32 glued with titebond and ive been shaving and sanding to shape it to fit the front of the box. Ive got another 1/8 to go and a reshape to get the angle at the bottom correctly.

I finally got around to cleaning up the cookie packages so that I can now vac the canopy.

continued from last post.

You will noticed that I built another wing.The first was 3/16 longer per plans, but I did not know if the plans were incorrect, misshapen, or that I just did not build it correctly. So I built the second to equal length plus I cut the ribs flat on the bottom instead of the Y type on the plan and it just right now.

I have not posted due to a little life getting in the way, but here is where the "Lil Toot" that NF speaks of.

They certainly named it correctly - Little Toot!  Such a wee little thing. So looking toward to seeing this in completion Smiley

Nice photo Neal. I can remember those days of being in shape also.

The Coonley has been started. I am using a different adhesive than I regularly use (Titebond). I finally got some glue bottles that work for Sigment and Acetone. I mixed 50/50 as Tom has tried to teach me

Incidentally...wasn't Doolittle's Schneider racer also black and orange? Cool
