The Fuselage is Coming Together

Things are starting to shape up on the fuselage. We mounted the Specialty Aero canopy and forward panel. All the formers are in place and we mounted most of the tabs. Here are a few shots of the formers and some of the panel templates.

S.O.B – Merry Christmas to me!

Last Tuesday 12/6 the Canopy and Cowling arrived. I have been trying not to think to much about it since then, until tonight! OH yeah Ron, buckle in and enjoy the ride cause this MoFo is starting to get good. 😉

Special Thanks to Steve Wolf and Tony Horvath at Specialty Aero. The cowling is awesome, the canopy… Well the pictures don’t do justice to how cool it really was to see. Since the right wing was done, it only made sense to pull the wings off the table and throw the fuse up for a little look. All of a sudden and for the first time you can see some shape to the fuse. The canopy comes with the front panel, from the cabanes back. Under which will sit the instrument panel and what the canopy closes on. So you can see the distance between the Top wing and the top of the fuselage. The B is much taller and feels that way. The 1-11, with top wing right there, it makes it feel like one hot little ride.
