Too bad this site came around when it did...I keep a blog of building activities at n820wa.blogspot.com As you can see I have been continuing to slowly work on the airplane. There are days when I want to give it to the scrap dealers and other days when it is great to tackle another problem.
The engine is pretty much complete, so now I must return to the problem of a heater box. I think I have the box figured out, but not the distribution in the cabin. Particularly to the back seats. The lack of a double floor really hinders the ability to brings things from the front and back of the airplanes. Current there are 4 fuel lines and 3 wiring bundles clogging up the left and right rocker panels, while the center is taking the 2 brake lines.
I've considered routing 1 1/2 rectangular plastic tube( from McMaster ) around the center stick and between the seats on top of the center box structure, but even then to get sufficient distance around the stick makes the cabin feel that much smaller.
Well, that's the problem for the next month or so. I'll keep you posted as to the progress
