    Thank you, Andy. 'We’re getting close on this one.' Further than one may think. Thank you Troy. Apparently the P.E. directions were not in the bag. They are inbound to you. Thank you, Ray, Mike. I figured out what was bothering me about the cowl. Here you'll see the 46mm dimension is from the cowling nose to a panel line set behind the wing leading edge. Also note the cowling leading edge is 34mm, not 30. The original 30mm was from a front view drawing where I had scaled the spinner diameter to match the above rather than the cowling leading edge to match the above. Bummer. I have been measuring from the cowl leading edge to the wing leading edge when I should be measuring forward from the panel line shown on the right. That's the making of the ventral vent. Hmm. Ventral Vent. I like that. Anyway. The right side of the tape, plus or minus 1mm, to the left is the new cowling leading edge. Which is along the forward panel line. Moving the cowling leading edge back solves two problems. The major one, shape. The minor one, how to make the gun trough. But now the cowling must be seamlessly attached to the fuselage. Always something new. Thanks for looking in. Until next time. Sincerely, Mark

    Thank you, Shawn. Reworked the spinner and cowling. The earlier one I just made. This go-around I drafted everything so spacings would be equal. Remade the prop base. Still has some tac on it. Props in place. Shady side. Made sure the side walls were equally spaced this time. 4mm. Where to begin? The cowling nose is not razer sharp. It has a rounded return. While attempting to sand the nose to have a flat surface that I could round I sanded it crooked. Lucky me. So I had to start over again by putting it into the box and gluing pieces to the cowling to raise the edge to 46mm. I only glued enough spacers to be able to glue a .040 thick by 30mm diameter disc onto it. Then I filled the space with scrap and Apoxy Sculpt and sanded it. The cowling in now 47mm deep instead of 46. I'm going with it. I'm ready to move on. I've spent weeks doing this. I'll get back to it some other time. I then cut out a 28mm disc and threaded it onto the prop shaft. I drew a 28mm circle onto the glued on .040 disc which gave me a 1mm lip that, after I had cut out the interior, I could sand in the round. Looks similar to before, but different. Not a perfect match to the drawing but it will have to do for now. Sincerely, Mark
