I have not been just sitting around

Postby trackwelder » Sun Sep 29, 2013 8:58 pm

I got a new hangar, and had to move from one end of the airport to another, while I was at it I picked up another couple of projects and a new flight instructor so I can get my tailwheel endorsement. here are a couple of pictures of the progress on the buttercup.


Help, I don't know how my pictures are coming out of my files right side up and winding up upside down here, (I guess you will have to hold your monitors upside down) but at least we have pictures. I tried brazing the piper channel in place on the tail, but couldn't get it to stick so I gas welded it instead. you can pick the plane up by the channel so I am going with it.

I am enjoying this time of the build, each time I get near the plane, I get a change in its appearance, when I go today I pln on finishing the rudder and starting on the horizontal stabilizer, not 100% to plans but a little closer to the tailwind or whatever Mike is calling his plane. I will call it something else but it is still a modified Buttercup.

Is this Build in Australia...?

Looks like the other side of the earth...

Better trade in that compass for Southern Hemisphere...
