    Uh Oh Stew,.....trying to confuse a Californian with a bunch of facts are you.........It's all about "looks" in California.......

    Quality time with the Dremel tool drum sander.......I'm thinking I might have to make a cosmetic cover over the left exhaust stub ( for "looks" ) so the shark mouth graphic wont get cut out.

      It is a very Stuka looking tow plane.... Headers and cans? or the stock exhaust?

        Headers and MTW 120K Canisters as that was the main purpose of the "field upgrade".....to get more header length ....and cool winglets.

      I think the words "looks better" and "Smellyak" don't really go together in the same sentence... but really it isn't about looks, it is about what the aerodynamics dictate for the amount of vertical fin area in the tail is necessary to compensate for the amount of vertical surface area added in the front by the longer nose. So the full scale design did it by lengthening the fuse and adding the dorsal fin. The nose had to be lengthened for balance since the turbo prop engine is so much lighter than the big fat radial. It will be interesting to see if the model ever knows the difference between the two designs. Really cool mods, Scott!! Really enjoy watching the process. Thanks for posting.

        Some people just go from bad to worse, but who's who among tug drivers is a very secret ballot, but all tug drivers are in front of glider guiders....most of the time...then they dump or get dumped!!!

        I'd downsize to the wimpy 150, but I'm afraid of the workload for the DG1000. There is no replacement for displacement. Anybody seen my gas can?......

          That sounds like slot-time verbiage to me!

            now I have to build a rack to hang the fuselage vertically to make mounting the cowl and engine easier.

              The Stuka effect is what I'm calling, "Thinking outside the box" Look out gliders!

                  Thanks Guys,

                  The all important engine controls..... with an off-set on the choke arm for the proper geometry

                  I love my Dremel 90 degree attachment to get into those spaces that need servo wire holes.

                  Figured I would have my best luck with the front wind screen if I glued the pieces on first and then cut things out. Accidentally glued a good patch of skin on my finger to the wood......... couldn't get a picture of it as the camera was too far away, needless to say some quality time slowly peeling my "signaling" finger off.......

                      The Air World Z-37 gear is 24mm OD so some minor adjustments was made to the mounting plates along with the new 24mm ID carbon tube as a socket.
