Hi all

Well I have been busy again, so here are a few more images.
I have now fitted the tail parts, this image shows me testing the tail blue LED before final glueing.

This image shows just some of the parts I made before deciding to use servo's for the wings.

These next 3 images show the outer wings now tested and almost finished, but ready
for the wing to be fully assembled together, I have left off the top skins, so that I can
continue these skins onto the inner section, I think this will help with the strength.

I am also leaving the work on the landing lights until after the wing is fully assembled and the wing is covered

I am now going back to the Fuselage in particular to fitting the inner wing section, I need to start
work on the radiator and the air intake, which are both fitted to the inner wing,

I have already done all the work on the wing attachment system to the Fuselage but I also have work to do on the fairings
and wheel covers

Well its been a long time since I posted anything about the work I have been doing on my Hurricane, the reason is that I thought I would buy a 3D printer and by using my AutoCAD Inventor, design the radiator and Air intake and print them, seamed a good idea at the time, well I bought the printer and then spent a great amount of time doing redesign and modifications to it.
The attachment DSC00030.JPG is no longer available
This image shows the latest modified 3D printer with printed parts for the cockpit

Here are a few more images of the Hurricane parts and I will be going back to sort out other images I have taken in the past to catch up.

David, That looks fantastic. Can't wait to see it fly. The cockpit detail is great.
