    Here are a couple of photos of where we are in construction. Notice the great wing ribs, courtesy of CW!

    Wow, I guessed I missed something in the earlier posts in this thread. I thought this was a model airplane project. THAT is no model. Great job!

    The only reason that all the wood parts are not done on the CW is because of size. The 14" width restriction precluded carving some of the parts. Ah well, the old jig saw, hand router, and band saw still have a home!! We are now creating a 1/8" mahogany ply overlay of the aluminum instrument panel for the "aristocratic" look. My partner wants a carve similar to the Chrysler wings for the panel. Hmmmm, ideas are flowing!!!

    I made a dash panel for my boat that may also give you some ideas:

    Here is what the finished craft will look like, in line art form.

    More pictures of where we are in the construction process. Some closer shots of the CW ribs. The next CW work will be a mahogany plywood overlay for the aluminum instrument panel using some tips from Dan.The panel will be the same layout as the one shown. This one is from a completed Bakeng Deuce.
