Majestic Major electric build.
Started with the fuselage side frames.
After reentering the hobby last year its great to experience the smell of balsa and glue again.
I am looking forward to fly this one when it is finished as it reminds me of the free flight aircraft and the early rudder only r.c models from my youth and the first steps in this great hobby when I was 12 years old in Amsterdam joining a club called Icarus.
To be continued.
Both fuselage frames ready to connect to the main bulk heads.
Constructing the frames with the help of my new disc sander is a treat!
Busy with finding out were to put the 5000 ma lipo (as much forward as possible!)
The idea is to load the lipo from the front at the bottom of the fuselage.
Made a batt. Compartment and engine bulkhead/ fire wall , looks like I am making progress as everything seems to fit now.
Work in progress trying to bend and bend......and bend to get the U/C fitted.
Those big wheels are impressive and already the old timer feeling is complete.
To be continued.
December 13-2014, finished the fuselage and stabilizer including the vertical fin.
Took me the good part of a week to design and build up the engine cowling and battery hatch.
Both came out very well and are hold in place by 2 strong little magnets, works fine.
Started on the first wing half this week and making good progress.
