Airplane down for final construction

I found a minor problem with my exhaust hangars the other day, meaning I need to de-cowl the airplane yet again. While I'm at it, it's time to bite the bullet and actually finish this airplane, gear fairings and all.

Leg fairing construction under way

The worst part about the fairings is that you need to get the airplane completely off the gear, and levelled at the same time. I'm going to try lifting by the engine mount while propping up the tail.

Looks like fun.

If you are going to prop it up by lifting the motor and the tail, you will probably need some support under the wings to keep it from tipping.

I have enjoyed watching your build log.
