Unfortunately Erik is having to slow down a bit - he is having serious health issues in the family. Pail Paaymans is going full steam ahead on the Spirit of Freedom version, als these pictures of the nose landing gear show. He is now working on the main landing gear - when that is finished the various elements will come together to make up the complete model! Watch this space!!
Some time ago we discussed the possibility to leave out the balancing weight in the nose: 60 grams is a lot, and may easily damage the undercarriage, even if reinforced with steel wire (visible in one of the pictures). Using the balancing strut as visible in so many real life pictures will be a logical way of presenting a static model.
Just received pictures of wings and engines in place.
