You're right, it is looking like a plane.  A great plane!  How big is this Alain?  Hard to tell on a bench photo.

I see the parts appear to be laser cut.  Was this a kit, or did you come to own a laser cutter?

More progressing the Turbinator-E. Got cockpit done and the pilot show show up soon (once i find one). Canopy was a long process to get it to fit properly but that is what sand paper and beer are for. it only took an hour to hour and voila, it fits. The tail section is almost finish and sheeting of the wing will be done once I install the wiring for the aileron servo and retract gear.

Thanks Al, just having fun.
Yes, I saw Al Coolen's plane in Margaree last year. yellow and red. real nice plane.
More works has been done to the Turbinator-E. Had to find a pilot that would represent my father-in-law nicely. a bit of a comedian he is. He kept mentioning the giant Gemini would crash in no time as he was helping me building it. He felt bad after the crash in Margaree. So, for his 86 birthday, i decided to make him my test pilot.  Wink Cheesy Cool
