Dream Classic Update 2

GSAL recently visited Chris and Mike building their Dream Classic.  They're almost finished, with just fuel system, throttle cable / lever, some instruments and exhaust system to finalise before first test runs / flights.  I was very impressed by how well they had done in giving the DC a period feel, with painting of frame tubes and colour doping the fabric.  The following images were taken during the visit, which was primarily to check the aircraft weight and confirm C of G.

Looking very period.
Colour tubes, dope, and Demoiselle shape rudder work a treat.
Wing - fold detail.
Looks like a lot of fun.
Love the hat.
Period looking prop.
Rotax 447 with pull start.
Swan neck catch for quick relase when derigging.
One very period looking chap.
We look forward to a flight review in MF Magazine early in 2018.
