Nearing completion of Pitts Pedal Plane

The Pitts Pedal plane that I’ve been working on for a year and half is nearing completion. I just need to paint the wheel pants and I’ll be done! My Dad came out and we ended up working on painting the airplane. He helped me tape off the hardest part, and we got almost all the final painting done using a nice inexpensive sprayer from Harbor Freight.

Here are the wheel pants after being carved and sanded...awaiting paint.

Putting the Empenage/tail together

If only real airplanes could have a tail that goes together this easy. The rudder and elevator mate together for a perfect fit. Just glue, and be sure that both items are square at a 90 deg. angle.
