Re: Building My Way

Nice. Surface looks very smooth. Where did you find the canopy?

Also, is that a Citabria in the background?

Re: Building My Way

Checked out that Fiebertechnmore website online and he appears to build his cowlings very much like Steve Webber did . Wonder if he bought the moulds from him a. Great website and much info.
Thanks for posting.
