Amazing framework John!!  Couple of questions: did you use a jig for the frame and do you drill and pin all the individual frame pieces or do you just glue them together?

Hi John :D

 

I know it's early in the build, but happened to notice the difference in sponsors and number placement between the museum piece and the one on the flats. Have you decided which version you're doing?

 

My vote is for the one with the Garlits rat on the nose.

 

Looking good man. Looking REALLY good.

John... what can I say but... this is Bad A$$. You are a true craftsman. I love how this body is turning out. I am still amazed that this started out as an R/C airplane canopy....lol

Looking great John. I agree with everyone. I'm sure it will be another stunning build when finished.

Chris- you're right. It will look great next to your Army FC. Ha.
