    Why do so many builders cleco EVERY hole?

    Thicker skins can do it too. Not chasing the skin can help greatly, by that I mean don't rivet in sequence. Pin the sheet in a few places along its length with rivets, then fill the gaps.

    They can be wheeled. Still are.

    P-51 Mustang Replica Tehnical Question

    They're yanking your chain a little. As mentioned, use the NAA prints. Everything is called out in detail. Also previously mentioned, this is a monumental undertaking, your chances of completion if working alone are effectively zero. It takes teams of experts years to restore/replicate a P-51...

    New EAA Chapter Build Project SoCal

    Kids in aviation, be it full-scale or model form, is a tough sell and doesn't result in short-term growth. Great for seed planting, but it's a long game. The EAA and the AMA do have a partnerships in place, though it's relatively new. I don't know the full scope of the program.

    Can you name these old airplanes.

    Worth looking at the spar splices for comfort level with the quantity, location, and scarf slope.

    Spar integrity

    Thanks for the input guys. I've been going back and forth on this one as it's a timesaver at a good price, but am not completely comfortable with the spar.

    Spar integrity

    Looking for opinions on this spar build. It's 3" x 6" on a Cassutt wing. Half-inch pieces rather than the usual one inch. Three pieces have splices within the fuselage width, which are the area of concern. Quality of build appears high, T-88 was the adhesive used. Thanks for any help. Craig
