Those are socket cap srews but will get changed out for flathead paited to match the fuse bolts.
They hold the 1/4 turn Camlocs in place. I also put camlocs on the hatch just in case someone wants to race on how quick we can get out planes out of the trailer and in the air.


I'll take more pictures of the cowl mounts, wings and such.

Here are a couple of pictures os the camlocks; the on is mounted into the stab.
Still thinking pit stops. I guess once in your blood it's always there,,,,

Sorry for not posting the pictures as I cover. I wasn't sure if I could pull off the scheme and colors and thought I might end up re-covering with a simple color scheme. I think its going to work out so I will show my progress.

I have a 3 axis CNC router and I thought it would be neat to use the CNC to draw the shapes for the scheme. I tool a sharpie and put it in the collet and drew on the back side of the Monokote. Next I cut the Monokote on a glass by using Windex to hold it flat to the glass.
Lets just do it on the laser cutter. Then we don't have to use a sharpie,,

We're going to use that plane as the poster child for jtec/RADIOWAVE it looks that good.

Fantastic

Al

Jerry, that's a great idea on the cam-locks. Theoretically much more secure than a bolt and blind nut, as the bolt could vibrate loose. Where did you find them? Any idea what they weigh (for those of us anal about those sorts of things....) Will be interested to hear your comments how they hold up in the plane over time.

One tip for ya on cutting out the monokote over holes in the plane, like for your cam lock holes and bolts. First, hit the area where the hole is with a hot iron - the heat will darken the covering (temporarily) except where the hole is, allowing you to see where the hole is. Then, take a really hot soldering iron and burn through the covering. This will do two things - give you a nice clean edge on the monokote, and also really seal the monokote down well around the edges of the hole.

Can't wait to see the finished product. You should be flying unlimited by the time I get back next fall, right?

Pete

Thanks Pete.

These are Camloc brand series 2600 from SRI-Supply. They sell the race shop all sorts of parts so we get a discount. They are very light ;aluminum body with a stainless steel pin.

I'll give the soldering iron trick a try.

I'm nowhere near ready for unlimited, We are ready for you to come back.

The plane really looks great Jerry. I can see why Al wants to use it as a so called poster child.

For now I only have parts. Soon it will be complete.

Today Matty Matt and Roger came to the shop and helped me paint, well me and Roger helped Matt paint.

I had everything in primer and sanded and thought we could get it done in a couple hours. Wrong. We spent 7 hours on paint, tape, more paint, tape, more paint, remove tape, clear coat, re-clear, and finally done.

The DuPont Croma base paint matched great. The Cowl, wheel pants, landing gear cuffs, and pilot figure are drying now.
