Default 14” spinner

For those who want to step beyond the as provided plans.

In my opinion, the RV-10 cowl set up for a 13” spinner is just not to scale for this airplane. While I clearly understand the benifits of common parts across the Van’s models, the standard 13” spinner just looks like an afterthought.

This photo is an RV-10 with a James cowl design for a 14” spinner. The extra inch, I offer, makes all the difference.

Will James no longer sells this cowl, but if enough people pinged him perhaps he will offer it again.

Don't need a James cowl. A builder can put a 14" spinner on anything. Here's one with an otherwise stock RV-8 cowl:

Okay. Consider the gauntlet tossed. I'm accepting that challenge - on the condition that the master will show us how it's done...
