As we are practicing social distancing. I've decided to build / repair a couple of bostonians.

first up my bostonian biplane, I drew this up during the Bostonian cookup, the plan has been refined since then, I've got the bones done, working on undercarriage and wheels now
total weight is 9.6g so far. it will be 15-17 g final weight i think.

Looks good!

I guess it's ok to correspond with you, despite the restrictions, since you are about as far away as it's possible to get.

I like that - quite a bit in fact!  I wonder if when you have finished I could have a copy of the drawing please.  As you say thank goodness for modern technology.  Can’t see a pdf. carrying  the virus!

David,

I'll be more than happy to send you a PDF, I just need to make a couple of changes to the current drawing ( I had to change a few things during the build process. )

The other Bostonian that I gave been working on is my Observer which suffered some damage some time ago I, had to replace a rib, and splice in a couple of inches of leading an training edge , and repair some damage to the fuselage. I also built new tail feathers. I've made the new tail movable.

I removed the covering and fixed it up, its 6g in this picture

I have hit a snag ,

   I wanted to cover the biplane cream and maroon, however I don't seem to have the right colour tissue and going out to get some in not an option at this stage.

   I'll put the biplane aside for a moment and work on covering the Observer.
