Well, I had a nice surprise this week. Cliff Evans has been lobbying Barry from Sarik on my behalf, about my cowl and canopy. I've received a PM from Barry (and an email), agreeing that there are some issues with his website.

Long story short, I've paid for them using PayPal and they should be on their way.

Thanks very much for your efforts on my behalf, Cliff. 8-)

Now; progress - such as it has been.

The wrong braces have been fixed.

One spoiler has been fitted. Four views should cover the other wing as well.

Bottom line - it works!

That looks fine Max, you are getting there. I have very mixed feelings about the Falke mainly because most of my trips in it were "check rides" with a suitably stern CFI sat beside me (often after I had blotted my copybook).
Brian. :D

Above photos in case you're still looking for a colour scheme?

That was me about to take an ATC lad on an experience flight circa 1984 ish...

Thanks, Barry.

I'm working this build around the South Australian Scouts aircraft.

Unfortunately the three of them have been sold off, due to financial pressures.

I managed to get 45 photos of this one in the shed on the day that the Assessors were there, getting them ready for the sale. I've sent them to Cliff in a Drop box for the forum archive.

I'm very happy that we have been able to sort out the bits. Pulling them myself was going to add extra time to the build. :D

Stay safe.
Max
