Thank You Tom,
It will fly sometime. I want to do all the details sometime. No rush here. I have new planes that came in also. I will not start another plane untill this is officially done.

I got the landing gear stays all made and secured. I also got all the stays and the rudder and elevator done. I have aluminum flashing 1"x2.5" covers on the the push rods coming out to the tail section made and painted too. A magnet keeps them in place. I am almost ready now for some clear polyU to seal all the roundels and isignias at this point. After that it is done.

Could not do any flying as the FAA closed all RC flying while our Prez. is on another vacation this time in Martha's Vinyard, MA. So I got the sprayer out and gave the plane a seal coat of oil Polyurethane clear satin. I want very little if any shine on the aircraft. The bottom is done. Next will be the top and I will be about 99% finished. Just a dashboard and a piano wire passes through the whole motor and battery module to prevent it coming out when power is applied. Maybe some odds and ends also.

I had to take my plane off the roof of my car. It has been sitting on my old car a few years. I just keep procrastinating about flying this jewel. I have the skills now to do it but I still would feel terrible if if I damaged her. Just too nice. So while I had it down I wanted to make a special bridle to lift the plane off the roof of my car so I can drive in and out and have clearance. This way I can safely store it overhead without harm. I covered the plane in light clear plastic and successfully have it suspended overhead now. It can't be seen to well now as it needs the cover to protect it from dust. Dust I have in plentiful form. So here are some more shots before cover.
