Got a little bit sidetracked with building myself a laser/CNC cutter.

Back on the Harvard now.

Installed the elevator and rudder servos.

Just a thought - you have got the 3S version of the FMS fan and not the 4S version?

Hi David.

This is what I use:

I got it from Amazon about 4 or 5 years ago. Cost about £15 and works fine, in my opinion.

Hi Goth.

I did ponder over that for a while but decided not to as I was glassing the model - I may regret that decision!

Started the paint job:

Had to stop because it started to rain - typical!

I decided to brush on the filler primer coat as most will be sanded off. I will spray the colour coat.

Thread: New EDF Mini Jets- Jet Provost & Folland Gnat

Just ordered a couple of the FMS fans from Bangood to add to the one I got from AliExpress.

Have know added the Hunter, Provost and Gnat to my 'to do' list, when and if they become available.

Hi Tony.

Do you have any photos of your Provost and Gnat?

I am sure that I'm not the only one that is 'itching' to see them!

Thanks for your comments gents.

I use Fusion 360 for my 3D design work and I am not an expert - I just tinker.

It is probably different from FreeCad (not used it myself) but if you think it might be useful, I can try and show you how I made the scoops in Fusion 360. Might take me a while though.

That's looking rather splendid Martin.

Have you managed to reduce the weight, relative to the first one that you made?
