Hubcaps & Gear Fairings

August 14, 2008

I finally got around to making and installing the gap fairings that go between the top of the gear legs and the fuselage.  I also got the bottom wing strut fairings from R & B Aircraft and fitted those.  Here is the finished product:

I also bought some hubcaps from Aircraft Spruce and painted them white.  As a nice finishing touch, I put the Miss'ippi Mudbug logo on the hubcaps:

After that I went flying for about an hour and came home just before sunset.  As I got ready to push the airplane back into the hangar, I saw this sunset forming up over the trees along the runway edge and grabbed my camera for a nice shot:

I liked it so much I'm putting it on the home page for a while.
