Re my advice re the supporting brace for F6 - I've told you to place it on the longerons.Looking again at the drawing that could be in the way of the rubber motor. I would suggest relocating the brace higher if it does clash - it could go as high as the lower edge of the canopy without detracting from the appearance. Add the new brace and then remove the first one.

Thanks John. I took it to my local club's indoor session yesterday, and friends who had their Comet Spitfire and 2 Messerschmitts done and trim testing there said the clearance looked okay to them, so I think I'll leave it in.

The ME 109 looked like an easier plane to build and had quite a bit longer fuselage. Two of the models had custom printed camo tissue, and all were super nicely built. One Me-109 weighed 6-1/2 grams. That one was nearly fully trimmed for flight by the end of the session.

Good afternoon vtdiy!
Great looking so far on this dimer. I love dimers but always have to remind myself that in this case less is more. You are in an impressionistic zone here! Keep a roll on brother!

Thanks Crabby. I had stopped work on this one, because my balsa skills were at this small an airplane level, not great. A change to Scigs Piper Bostonian which seemed easier (fuselage and tail group done), then just wanting to get something flyable done for my indoor club meet, I slipped into very simple foam madness with the No-Cal Caudron 460. Not as simple as it first seemed, at least I got to the flying trimmable stage, there. That plane is now built, so, maybe I should work my way back into finishing this one. Encouragement like yours makes a difference, I thank you for it.

I know I'm going to have to replace the former that was giving me so much trouble earlier -- the grain is running the wrong way, now, and it's bound to break off again. also, some of the notches are broken out on what I have so far.

But, everything is fixable if you have the patience for it. I think a break from it was a good idea.
