Default Looks good!

You make it look too easy. Almost like you’ve previously built 63 airplanes (or so). Back here in the real world, (aka my shop) that would take about six months to complete. I think I need an afterburner on my pneumatic squeezer.

Did you use the Dremel tool shown in the video to cut the spinner in the sharp "U" area of the spinner (where the front of the prop nests into the spinner)?

Do they have less pointy spinners?

More P51 or ME109 rounder style?

Cummins spinner - Australia company. Of course I had to order raw one with no cutouts.

Don’t try polishing it. 1100 alum takes forever and doesn’t really get perfect in my opinion. Get it chromed after fit.

It was a combo of air powered sanding disk, dremel, round file and emery cloth. Just little bit at a time after initial trim to marked line.

Very nice videos. Can you tell us about your cameras? Especially the front 360 camera! Very cool idea.
