Looking good Patric, when will she be flight ready ? I notice you do not have the conventional spring undercarriage ? It actually looks more "period correct" with the gear you have.

First flight! INX got some air beneath her tires for the first time yesterday.

All went well, slight roll trim to be looked into but otherwise she flew great!

Thanks to all involved and who helped me along the way!
