Adding turtledeck

Tailwheel mount

Getting everything to fit in the tight spacing at the back of the fuselage has been a little tricky, but I think I finally have everything attached and drilled.

Here is the tailwheel mount that I had to order to get this part of the fuselage finished.  I now realize it would have been extremely difficult building without this part and adding it later.

I temporarily attached the tail for this picture to see how things are coming along and to convince myself there aren’t any glaring faults with the fuselage.


Fuel Tank

I needed the welded tail skid mount and decided to order a bunch of other kit items at the same time.  Here’s the 17 gallon fuel tank.  I got curious and weighed it–12.5 lbs.
