    Can you tell me where you purchased the detailed RR instructions on the engine? I have a couple Pocher kits that I will be finishing when I'm
    finished with my current project. Any info would be appreciated, thanks.

    Get the appropriate diameter wire and slide one side of the hinge ( all three) onto the wire and glue them to the door. Then take out the wire and
    attach the other side of the hinges and glue to the door pillar. They should open and close smoothly!

    You can use just about any rod or tube, aluminum, brass, wood, or styrene. Pick the diameter you need and put a strip of two sided tape on one end
    and your good to go. Replace the tape as needed. It will last forever.

    It's too cold to paint, I'll have too wait for spring to finish it.

    Great information, thank you. I have a Canon 60D with the 18-135 lens, hopefully I will be taking better pictures.

    Oh, wait, I'm in Arizona and you are where it gets REALLY cold. On second thought keep them pics a'rolling!

    Thanks Tim, I lived in the Chicago area all my life, born and raised but it dose get cold, The cold is getting old and I need too get to a warm
    climate. Maybe 2 or 3 more years I'll be ready for the move.

    Rob, Mike, Jacob thanks

    That is one fantastic model.

    Excellent work, and it's 1/16 scale which makes it even more challenging.

    I built the Comet kits when I was a kid, if I remember they where 0.50, 0.75, and 1.00.
    I didn't build them very well, about half way through winding the prop the fuselage crunched up and it was on to the next one.
    Sometimes I did build them well enough to fly and crash, they where fun to build.

    At this time it's to soon to think about. I need to finish the model first. The plan still is to make a kit.
