Today was plumbing day.

The last major subsystem was built. The engine section.

I still have plenty of glueing to do, but this was the last
"big" section.



Getting everything lined up was interesting. I followed the
instructions mostly, Deviating when it seemed to make sense.



Once it was mostly together I started running in the tenex.
I didnt clamp or tape anything. It just seems to fit together
very well.

I sprang for the metal parts, boy do they look nice! The plastic is very well done, but nothing beats turned aluminum.

I should get the small tanks and the rest of the tubing on today.

I'll have to start thinking about painting soon. I've been using
Tamiya spray cans lately because they do such a nice job,
But I picked up a new compressor and regulator/water trap at
harbor freight a few months ago. This project would be perfect to test it out on.

The last subassemblies are done.

The landing gear.

Each gear has 10 parts.



They build into working gear.





I have the aluminum gear shafts, I'll install those in the
final assembly.

Next up is a spray of Tamiya gloss aluminum.
