Still adding the skin to the other side, has anyone have the type M1 recoil mount for the M-8 flare gun?.

After having a week off from building the cockpit, I am back on and progressing with the skin fitting.
Just have 2 more sheets to cut, then the riveting starts.

How soon do you think it will be before it is on the road, going to events? Any idea yet, or is that still some way off? Do you have a trailer for it?

That's a big and impressive lump of metal work. Garage roof off to fit it? :D
