Will a DA120 fit inside the cowling without cutting holes for the cylinders? Specs don't indicate cowl width.


Love the Bulldog paint scheme. Looks like a great plane. Remember seeing Jim fly at a few airshows. RIP.

I guess the big question is for me the covering. Since it is oracover and a print on the covering. How will it reheat and shrink if it?

The one in the video has a GP123 in it so I would say the DA120 will fit in the cowl.
