 Progress so far.

 V-173 -  Main undercarriage attached. Need to sill add one strut after doing the small fairings at the top.
               Balance weights on elevators made. Brass rod with a small blob of 5 min epoxy.

 X-28 -  Cockpit done with rotary tool. Working on engine and wing floats.

   Cheers

   Gordon

 A bit of progress. Decals added. Tail wheel fitted.

 Spinners and propeller blades need a bit more work and are dry fitted.

 The other picture is the tail wheel. Thick gauge copper wire around a bamboo skewer. Brass rod and tube with copper wire.
 using the skewer made it easier to handle

It looks just like the real thing! (Although I am sure most pilots did not have the assurance of landing on carpet....!)
