Brent,

Your plane looks great! Best of luck with testing. Since I'm using some of your clecos, I'm hoping mine will look that good

Talking Engine Hung

Well with all the rain we had here from the tropical storm and the fact that i was tired of running wires, i decided it would be a great day to hang the engine. Its an O-360 A3A. Instalation wasnt as bad as i expected. We mounted the engine mount to the engine and then hung it as an assembly to the firewall. Thanks to all of you that helped me! I started on the slow build fuselage march 12th of this year. Im almost 6 months into it. This is my first attempt at loading pictures. sorry for the photo quality, The room is pretty small and its hard to take good pictures.

Thanks....







My god child Julien setting the altimeter.

My mistake, they look like the chrome covers from a millennium edition Cessna.
Your project looks to be at a very fun stage, can't wait!

Hey Calvin, it has millennium cylinders. And Mike, what's up with the vacuum pump? I am using a standard 6 pack panel. Just wondering....???
