Here are some new shots of the P-12 project. Go to pages 2 and 3 to see them. I still have some pictures of the FS trip to Spain I made in the Summer mixed in as well.
BTW, someone asked if the P-12 and F4B had flat fuselage sides and bottoms. The answer is that they almost do. The fuslage frame on both the real thing and our scaled down version are flat, but there are formers to create a slight curve at the sides. In the cockpit you end up with a little more elbow room, it looks better, and the fabric covering works better as well. The later models of the P-12 and F4B were all metal and the shape was much rounder.
Thank You for showing the pic's WOW what a project, I can't imagine what it would be like to build that then have a first flight. Good luck and make sure you build it very carefully !!! ;-)
It really starts looking like an aeroplane now !!!
My dad is a perfectionist and has the skills and knowledge to build it right. If anything it's a little over-built. Althought that means it's heavier than it has to be, there's plenty of power out front, and it will penetrate turbulence well!
It really looks impressive (and a bit scary) when it's on it's gear.
