Re: Dalton Aviation 42% Extra 300 Mark Leseberg Edition build

Wait! Before you start building show us some pictures of the kit as it comes from Dalton. Maybe even the boxes, I have to see how many and how big so I can find some good places to hide it from the wife...

Sleepy... no small parts in this bad boy!

1bwana1... look up a few posts... there it is.

Cspaced... I'm going to have to get your wife to pre- prepare meals for you.

Ok first glance at the kit... and yes I'll probably look at it the next night before i start the build...

The cowl is much longer than the 260 and so is the motor box... I see that the lower formers by the gear plate are now notched to fit into the gear plate (no measuring required)

This thing is big and sweet.

Looks good, I know I drouled over mine for a few hours when I first saw it, and I havn't seen a kit before that. Tony does a great job packing the stuff.

Matt, can you measure how long the wing root and tip are from leading edge to trailing edge?

Sure... Root 28" Tip 12 3/4" thats just the core though so figure another 5/8" or so for totals with the LE & TE.

Oh good, that's not so big. I bet I could wrap that up and slip it under the XMass tree with a note from Santa. She can't blame for for Santa thinking I have been a very good boy all year...

Re: Dalton Aviation 42% Extra 300 Mark Leseberg Edition build

Well... my hot knife didn't come today, so I started with the fuse tonight.

Motor box is done and stab box is done... not bad for a litte over an hours worth of work. I had to wait for the glue to bond!

If you have never seen one of Tony's kits, look at the motor box. It is all lazer cut ply and it is tight. I use the rubber mallet in the pic to make everything nice and tight. My adult beverage of choice... Black & Tan.

Everything is put together with tightbond except for the hard wood in the corners of the motor box, I use Ultimate glue there.

For those of you familar with the Daltons... picture 5 shows the top of the motor box and you can see that it is much longer than on the 260 or the regular 300.

I got to see the first leseberg edition come to life in Tonys shop before the shootout. Tony has a great eye for perfection when it comes to his planes. I miss working side by side with him. Well back to building. Rob Joyner
