the engine...hmmm..i seem light years away from that, but...i think you have influenced me into thinking more about the belgium engine, (fuel by stella artois?)...fadec, aircooled..yeah, but which one? the 260 works..but now the 350i, wonder what's the cost...95 octane mogas. looking into black oxide at a plating shop in lansing. confused a bit about what to drill out on fuselage...front channels, vertical pieces...need to meet sometime...going to Oshkosh??? I am going on tuesday-saturday driving there and camping.

If the weather was better I would take you up on the offer but in January and February I can't see making a trip up your way.   I think what I really need to do is go through the drawings for the fuse in a lot more detail. Perhaps the photos available will become clearer when I am more familiar with the drawings.  I am shopping for material now so that I can get started on forming some ribs to keep me busy till later this spring when I can start putting things together.  My shop will be tied up through the spring putting in an addition.  It was part of the deal I made :)   I have been very busy looking through everyone's photos and pages.  Thank you for the kind offer.  It must feel real good to be sitting where you are on your project.  Good luck.
