...The elevator is finished for 95% now.
Hinges installed with a long 2 mm wire where a special brass nut was soldered to.
This way easy pulling out is possible.
The cowl is now under construction too.
All was grinded till for me the shape was OK. The glass fibers lay-up with epoxy is done.
Adding filler is on hand now as well as more grinding...more filler and grinding...etc. :roll:

Noel,

you truly are an inspiration! keep those pictures coming, I had to post because it looks like no-one is interested otherwise and I'm sure there are lots of 'silent' viewers like me really enjoying your build and engineering skills!

Hi Elliot,

Thanks for your kind words!!!
Indeed I see the counter from the viewers too.
Since MW last October I had no time for the hobby.
It was good to learn that a lot of the pilots over there had been following the building of the SF27 B M.
So posting info on the SS site is never wasted...
I will post more but three family affairs and garden work kept me from doing much on the Milan till now.
This will change next week I hope, if Murphy lets me, he had a hand in it too...

Till later and just a few more days...fingers crossed!!

Noël

Hi Robbie,
thanks but don't, it's a lot of work in the end, probably I like it... ;)
I made some progress on the grinding of the cowl.
The problem is: " The master is watching..." and I am struggling...
In the end this will look close but still a long way to go.
It is not the easiest cowl to make, and different from the RF4 one.
From now on normally I will go forward again.
Noël
