OK so interest is still there, Unfortunately i don't have USB port working on my PC now days so no latest pictures could be uploaded presently, but a lot of text will be shared. Guy do post once in while, this way i know its being observed with interest.

Latest on the project is that local TV station , OLN's RC-TV has taken over this project to shoot series of footages from present stage to maidin flight in mid July!, now they will do 3 different series on my model and will be on air on there regular Saturday morning show, so whoever can see it on Cable is most welcome to it.

As for model,i have commenced glassing the model, currently i'm just doing small areas as i i only have 12 min epoxy to work with, once i get west Systems laminating epoxy and glassing cloth i will start to do full air frame starring with fuselage.

Sanded smooth fiberglass has its on feel to it, finish becomes dynamic once glass is layed and sanded to perfection.

A lot more to come so stay tuned..

Hello Guys,

Just to let all here know that i have canceled the the offer from RCTV, it was becoming high pressure for me to handle as they were asking too much from me for there show, so i passed on it as these things can't be done properly under pressure. Now i feel a lot relaxed and will be building this model relaxed attitude...

Mohsin,

it will be in TCA (Trans Canada Airlines) livery now as we have lost our CF-TGE to MOF in US forever, this project was started in fear of losing CF-TGE back in August of last year. You can see picture of it my signature banner when it was in service.

Sorry i couldn't clearly understand what you meant by Prop hollow area!, do mean by current framework of engine pods?....Can you be specific...

This one will be done in TCA livery but i will be doing another one after this and that will be in PIA livery and may even cost $40,000 just in material costs :wink:

(Hint Hint 1/6th scale model!!!)

Finally after long wait i managed to rig up L/Gs for the bird, I made these as rolling mock ups to get better idea about its length of struts, wheels, wheel base and over all height of the model how it will be once retracts will be on the model. I took few pictures today and will be posting them on RCU, RSCB and Aeroclassic's site. I will post link here as soon as pictures are posted so stay tuned..
