    I REALLY like your belly access. We only have a square hole in front of the section you have open with fabric covering from there to the tail. It ain't easy getting back there to accomplish anything.

    We already had to pull back some fabric to re-weld the tailwheel attachment bracket and we've not yet repaired that. Maybe we should cut the rest of the fabric out and replace it with an access panel. Not knowing anything about fabric do you think that could be easily done on a finished plane?

    Hi Gilbert & Steve
    Thanks heaps for posting the pics. When I saw Steve's pics I started to wonder how the front might be retained in the airflow and after seeing your panel Gilbert it clicked - great mod.
    Again, many thanks.
    Cheers
    Hunter
