finally had time to do some more work on the 300
we have been so busy at work I'm surprised that I got this  part done
here are a couple of pics of the wing nearly done now








next is some work on the Cessna 310 to finish up the cabin completely ( look out here comes another boring vid  :headslap: )

by the way ........ I like the new smileys , these 2 go well together

We like boring videos.

Ummm... a dumb planker question:
Where are the ailerons and/or flaps? Have you not installed them yet :t2954:

still have to get then covered yet , then hinge them'
and I have to make a new elevator joiner and concect the elevators together . ( vid on those steps coming up )
but before I do those steps I usually like the get the rest of the trim done as much as possible
and start setting up things like the cowl motor mount etc... I will be making short vids on various steps
in a new youtube channel  called tntrcnutz 's tips and tricks and it will cover a lot of the plane tricks I do to
save time money and headaches.
these are all coming soon ......spring is knocking at at the door which means fly time,

Ya know, I was going to suggest that you get a channel and start putting this stuff up. It's really in-depth and I think well done. and to those who have an interest - it ain't boring.

 :t2970: :t2970:

well if that one didn't bore you .....maybe this one will

 :headslap: :headslap:

this is a tutorial on a couple of the techniques I use to put trim on planes
without getting bubbles under the covering ,  lining up the lettering and so on

it must be boring ....take a look at ms. sleepyhead in the background...

Well we are getting closer to finishing the covering
just a couple of things left to do (vids coming )

but her are a few pics of where we are now with the lettering all finished
the only thing left to do is the pin striping and gap seals for the control surfaces ... definite vid on this...
I know I originally wanted to go with the beer logo trim but the expense was a bit more to grasp having them made up
so I thought it would be a good vid if I did something that I could do with covering

tnt and mstnt

Tim you are a Master at this... That extra is gonna be a great looking plane when your done...

I picked up my 2nd Extra 300 from our former President and good friend who passed away a month ago... It's a Aeroworks 35cc Extra 300, 30cc DLE Engine, 78" Wingspan 69" Fuselage Ready to fly just add Receiver, only had 5 easy flights on it... Mine doesn't have the decals as they want $70+ dollars for those...



Once I get back to normal after the car accident I'll be taken her out for a run up and maiden flight...

Hi Tim,

Judging from the side decals, I suspect you plan on doing a little inverted flying  :t1815:

oh shoot..................
 :headslap: :face-slap:

i thought something looked odd

:b0230: :b0230:

all kidding aside it is a pretty cool touch for inverted flight
which is one of my most favorite things to do.....especially very low.....

From what you started out with, what a huge difference. Amazing rebuild on this. I would expect it to fly as good as she looks, inverted or not : :t2037:  :t2037:  :t2037:

Had a little time to work on the Extra so I decided to do a new kind of vid....
I discovered Movie maker and thought I would give it a try. I researched a lot of you tubes on how to use it
and this is the end result. I don't think we did a bad job of it , but there is more to learn as you can see.
I am open for ideas to improve the use of movie maker as we are still learning the program.





The plane is getting closer to completion and hopefully , soon , in the air.
The next vid is on sealing the gaps for the control surfaces and sealing the fire wall
