    THX Boats. But it's not a model made by me personally. I should have mentioned the source of these pictures. I have found both of them via the Internet. Just to show how the model can be nice when finished. Sorry for misleading of you. :( :oops:

    ENGINE AND COWLING
    Ahoy
    Ok fellas here is the update for now got lots of work ahead of me, for now You will see the exploded views of the engine cylinders governor ring and cowling rings. The engine assembly took 5 hours to build all parts were cutted out and preformed to shape then the installation was done after the engine was completed and the cowling rings, I am letting the cowl assembly dry over night, tomorow I will burnish out the cowliong to smooth out the joints were they are glued together. so far on the I would like to thank everyone for their replies now its time to get down to buisness.
