Hey Meatball! Q#1 - I followed the manual in order for fuselage and controls. and pretty much the same for the wings. Since this in my 4 build (Acroduster II, Pitts S-1C, One Design) sometimes I'd get out of order because of time constraints, or like tasks on the finish kit. The Covering I used Oratex manual. Q#2 - I have an early Highlander #393 so the SS tailwheel was not offered. I Ordered TK1 Racing's Pneumatic tail wheel set up. But I'm sure the SS tailwheel is pretty obvious. If you go to Steve Henry's Wild West Aircraft website Galleries the are some pictures of his later Yee Haws.

Good Luck
Bruce
