April 3, 2020 – This latest model (top right) is from the 1/4 scale Balsa USA J-3 kit, modified into the earlier J-2 variant. It will be finished to match the one I flew as a teenager.
The Engine is a Saito 1.25 cu.in. four-stroke. Dummy cylinders on the left side are from Top Notch Products A-65 kit. I still have to make the eyebrow for it. The landing gear assembly is from Hangar 9.
With the weather now warming up, construction of the wing will proceed in the garage.
