Default Guillows P-38

Guess I should start the build thread before I get too far. All the plumbing is in. I spent a bunch of time beefing up the tail assembly and the stabilizer had to be rebuilt as it has some ugly warps, twists and gaps. The wing tips will get cut off and replaced a carved solid balsa taper to make it easier to sheet. One of the next steps is putting her on a diet...hole punch for wing ribs and formers.
I know I posted up some photos in another thread, but figured this was the right place to continue. All up it is 14.6 oz now, sans batteries (380mA /7.4V). Not sure where the CG is right now, but have plenty of space (if that's really possible) in each fuselage near the CG point.
Now for the really clever stuff...I figured out how to use the scale cutouts in the cowl and fuse scoops to be functional for cooling. Each section can be removed with a few screws or nylon bolts, except the vert stabilizers. Once they're covered and epoxied - they will be permanently attached - rudders can be removed to separate fuse from tail. Though I don't plan on doing that on any regular basis.

Couple of more photos I don't think I posted.

Default Update on progress

Balsa sheeting has begun. Did an engine run and servo test and everything checked good. Battery box fits nice just slightly behind CG point with easy access under 'supercharger' cover. Plank sheeting worked good on lower fuselage half.
