    Going to do my first jet on a stick gear up. Pretty strait forward build on installing acrylic tub in exhaust. i used 1/2 x 3/8 acrylic tube. Just needed to add plastic stalk to center the tub in the burner can. Had to cut the pilot leggs off and get th instrument panels to fit between the legs. Closing of main gear doors was not to bad . Some sanding of main gear doors rto set fluh with wing was required. Now to start painting interior .
