    I had the same idea rattling around in my head a couple years ago. My plan was to use the engine and transmission from a zero turn lawn mower to drive the tracks. I'm sure it would work just not sure how well and it would probably be too heavy. I never made it past the thinking part, would sure like to see someone try it though. There is nothing but fear and common sense holding you back.

    There are some things I missed mentioning, you need to do a little math to determine what size of bolt to use. For example you could use a larger bolt and only one bearing.

    This is my home brew version. Pretty easy to make out of scrap I had laying around. https://youtu.be/YtxCW6GG6fY

    Thank you, I am sure glad I got the chance to buy them. They really are in incredible condition, I hope I can do it justice on my build.

    Split top cowl
    I finally got around to splitting my top cowl and it worked out pretty well, so I thought I would post some pictures.

    A friend of mine owns one with a Honda conversion powering it, He has owned it for quite some time but is just starting to fly it this summer. The engine was giving him a lot of grief
    with cooling and other issues. I've always liked the plane, they look really nice and seem to be well put together. It sure looks like someone did a nice job on yours, it should be a nice project.

    Thanks guys, that’s what I thought but then started second guessing myself. I never thought of the gusset but it’s good to know. I am planning on a orange and black paint job when I get that far, I would love to see a larger picture of that one on your profile pic logtrucker.

    Drag tube brackets
    I am assembling my wings and was wondering, should I use Hysol on the drag tube brackets and rivet them to the spars or just rivet them?

    I figured it out, whatever Kitfox used to cut the metal tubes left a small burr on the inside of it. I smoothed it out with a round file and now the nylon tube can be tapped right in.

    I came a crossed this old ad well searching and realized that I own these kits now. I didn't buy them from Doug, I must have bought them from the guy he sold them to. Anyway I thought it was kinda neat, I am building the III now and intend to collect enough parts to finish up the model !V at a later date.

    That’s what I was doing too, it worked on my rudder and elevator hinges. I just cut them long to start and then pushed the bevel through and trimmed it off but not having much luck with the cable guides.
