Skyranger Swift progress...

Recommended Posts

Looks good.

 

I have always wondered if it would be possible to cover an aircraft in a clear mylar-like covering giving a "flying skeleton" appearance?

Make for a much more thoruogh preflight inspection but the visibility in the circiut might be an issue.

The Swift's a nice enough looking plane with it's skin on, but it looks like a flying bedstead when it's naked! 004_oh_yeah.gif.82b3078adb230b2d9519fd79c5873d7f.gif

See Jim the fuse fabric wasn't too hard after all. Looks like you have done a nice job. Give me a call before you cover the wings there are a few little tricks that are handy to know.

You and Owen do very nice work. Looks like a clever Oil cooler and radiator mount. You should be airborne very soon. Great Job!!!!!!!

Thanks everyone, here are a couple more photos of the build . Thanks again Greg for all your support! Hope to fly up and visit some day in the not too distant future. For anyone in the market for a quick build, value-for-money, robust kit aircraft: I can recommend the Skyranger... 8 months spare time from arrival to completion! Cheers, Jim.

Jim, I'm impressed with your work and the plane is looking smart. How many hours have you spent to date on the construction (approximate), or when did you commence construction?
