Short bump - quick update

Been doing little bits here and there...I've built four cockpits so far.
Three Nose assemblies...working on the fourth.
And two rear fuselage halves.

All this because I am modifying the design at the same time as I introduce new details and parts.
I'm also running into small problems in a couple of areas...
one being the engine, and wing root design.
With Nobi's help, we have sorted out some changes and he is updating the basic template.

I also just started a test build of the Snowbird's artwork...



and introduced some new exhaust parts for the tail end of the plane.
Which have worked out quite nicely.
(Nobi is also designing for me, the rear fairing and smoke/diesel injector nozzles)

While assembling the Snowbirds fuselage, I got to try out my updated Speedbrake recesses and door assemblies.
Unfortunately, this brought to light another design problem with the model.
...and some related assembly problems have now led to me redesign the rear fuselage

and once again, Nobi is modifying the template to my instructions.
(lol Poor guy!)

Anyway, I am slowing down with test builds until I get the new template,
and then I'll probably start again with another Snowbird's test.

Stay tuned bat-fans!

yup, good photo.

...
I'm waiting on Nobi to send me some updated files.
Not doing much at the moment with the model.
In fact, I haven't been doing much all week since my father went into the hospital again.
He passed away this morning...so things are a bit somber at the moment.
(Please, thats not a request for sympathy messages...its actually a relief to end the five year battle with alzheimers.
I just have to help my Mom get through this.)

...
Sitting on a new set of speed brake doors for the tail of the Tutor
can't wait until the new tail artwork gets here so I can try them out!
That was one of the major reasons for having to redesign the tail section.
A fuselage seam was just too close to the speed brake doors, making the part very weak and difficult to assemble.

Deepest Condolences Dave

Here's a pic of a Snowbird with a Red Arrow, Thunderbird and a Blue Angels over Quebec City for its 400th Anniversary. Too cool.

Looking forward to your release of the Tutor. Worked on them many, many, moons ago in Moose Jaw, SK.

Take care,
Don

I'm sorry for your loss Dave. You and your family will be in my prayers.

I don't know how I missed the start of this thread. This is very cool! There is a flying CT-114 on the field where I work, it is hangered right behind my building.

Sorry to hear that, Dave. My condolences. And I wish you and your family / next of kin lots of strength. I totally understand the relief factor, by the way.

Don't be afraid to take some photos for me?

To be honest, I have internet access to a couple of good "walkarounds"
and many more photos.
And there is a Tutor in my local Air Museum that I will go see (and take some photos)
But you never know what might come up in the futuure.
Do you have access for detail photos?

...
No model work today...got to arrange a Cremation.
And then take my Mom for a walk or whatever.
