ADDED SIDE WINDOW BARS (ORIGINALLY THE ARF DOES NOT COME WITH THEM), MORE RIVETS TO THE COWL AND ENLARGED THE COWL VENT AREA TO LOOK MORE REALISTIC AND BETTER....

Finally got the engine started and it definitely sounds really nice...it seems the plane will perform better than expected with a lot of power

I just applied some decals that I think make my Cub look more real and cool as well....scale airplanes are fun to make and this one is not the exception

finished applying rivets (finally got the glue mix right), assembled the plane and it looks fantastic...also added a locking system (pretty easy) to hold the window open (not for flying though) and also got 2 videos of the lights working...

I just glued the fuel cap assembly on both wings, the pitot tube on the left wing behind the landing light as positioned in the real plane and started to test rivets...i am trying to get the elmer's glue and water mix correct...

Glued the window and now both window and door can close....i made it close tight cause some people said that the window and door tend to open mid-air.

I got some details: control sticks glued and functional, removable velcro seats.

Handmade seat belt (took me 2 hours) glued and fully functional, as well as pilot ready to fly....added a life vest as souvenir in the back of the cockpit too.

throttle levers installed, seat belt mechanism, headset, flap lever ....haven't glued the right window yet....maybe over the weekend

i am planning to apply decals maybe next week and therefore making it look more scale day after day...hope you guys like it..

as you can see, i love scale details ....more details coming soon
