Giant 133 Model Update


Just so you don't think I'm on vacation, here are some pictures of the cowls and nacelles 99% completed. I'll be working on the wing and flaps for about two weeks and will update then.

George's Model

Once that magnificent model has flown and won its prizes, it should go to the AMC Museum!

Giant 133 Model Update

Hi Guys,

Wishing you and yours the very best in 2013.

Work on the 133 has been slow due to the holidays and family matters.  I'm just getting over a nasty cold that has kept me from doing much on her. The last couple of days my enthusiasm has returned and I've applied rivets to 3 of the 4 cowls. Each cowl has approximately 4000 rivets, screws and fasteners embossed. The 4th cowl will get done tomorrow and work on the nacelles will begin.

Happy New Year!
