Up next is the Hot Canary Peanut blown up 200%.  It's kind of interesting, kind of ugly and kind of simple  Smiley  

I'm starting with the fuselage which is what I normally build last.  I'm using a technique of tack gluing formers into the fuselage during construction to keep it square.

I like it. It's not ugly but it is a great subject.

  Good subject, I built a 20" one from a 3-view for Indoor and it was a reliable flyer.

Mike Stuart's pistachio was a chunky little thing ..... this will seem huge at 26" span!
Look forward to seeing it progress  Smiley

Cool project! Always liked Bill Warwick's designs. He was one of the prominent players in the early homebuilt aircraft scene.  He completed the first plans built Thorp T-18 homebuilt (open cockpit originally); that plane's design must have been a major influence on the Hot Canary.  The photo in your first post really shows the striking resemblance.  Warwick built a bunch of planes, including a little high winged taildragger he named "Champ", as well as the W-3 Bantam (peanut scale plans available in the Gallery).  Warwick died in the maiden flight crash of a Thorp T-18 he was flight testing for another builder.

Make the same mistake on both sides; nobody will notice...
