Smile wheels and gear leg fairing on !

After a long time .....

- I waited for engine break in
- I waited for right epoxy curing temperature

... and now I can definitely set my heavy wing and install the roll A/P brace

Default Beautiful Bird

Luke:
You should mount a camera and take pictures whenever you fly. I have fond memories of a week spent at a lakeside home in Lago Maggiore. Some of the most beautiful scenery in the world (food was pretty spectacular too)

Default Nice Plane

Luca,

Very nice plane, I hope to fly this summer with good luck. I can't wait to see your plane in person again, this time flying! I will be taking a vacation to Italy next summer (end of August). I hope to see you then if all works out.

This photo is my new desktop picture! Thank you for the inspiration.


Ciao!
