Aircraft maintenance

We've been working on both our Fokker D-VII and our American SE5-a to get them both ready for the flying season.  The Fokker D-VII is under-going extensive maintenance, including changing the engine mount and recovering the tail surfaces (see picture).  We also plan to repaint the D-VII (see current red scheme picture) us  at with your paint scheme suggestions!

Our 7/8ths scale American SE-5a is currently seeing us build new "mailboxes" for engine baffling (see picture).  We've put a new engine on it (a Lycoming O-235).  We're hoping for flight tests sometime in March.
