I'm curious as to why you didn't just paint the whole thing instead of taking all that time to mask off the areas you don't see? Looks nice, just curious.

It's just as Bunky said, it's so you get a wood to wood glue joint.

No worries, it may look like I'm going quick but it's still going to be 6 months by the time I get it flying. For me the actual building part is kind of half way, then you have to cover it and yes it seems to take forever.

I have a friend of mine helping me out with the covering, because quite frankly i hate it. Not to mention im not that good at it lol. But i am really looking forward to having her done, im excited to fly it. I think it will be a huge step in helping my flying out, im currently flying a Pilot-Rc 40% Extra 260 with a DA-170 in Advanced. I think the new Carden will be a huge benefit to me, and help me hone my skills. How do you like your current 126'' Henry ? Does it fly good ? Is it everything you wanted it to be ?

all you have to do is buy a set of plans from someone who has a carden. then trace their motorbox formers onto poster board, and youre all set. you can get the fiberglass and canopy from carden. have a carden for fairly inexpensive.

although when you get it from carden, all the balsa sheeting is nice and true(well from what ive heard). Hate hunting for good balsa but sometimes you have no choice. still thinking about it. one day.

You should do it Harv. The kits are top quality and although they are a lot of work you end up with something you can be really proud of.

Just finishing up the tail wheel mount. I glued on a 1/2 inch balsa block then carved and sanded to final shape.
Next up the fin/rudder with Durant direct drive...
