Real. My computer won't support any sims except for Microsoft train sim 2000
sorry, no pics, all film that got damaged when a pipe broke in our basement (clean water, thank god)(the sewage pipe was only 1 foot away). We were going to get it developed, but the pipe broke.(Than god my trains were high and dry, They were all prewar standard gauge Lionel!)

Chris,

Did you get it painted yet or are you still painting it this weekend? Can't wait to see those photos!

The leading edges, the control surfaces, the cockpit and the nose will be metal, correct?

nope, the leading edges are wood and covered in fabric with the rest of wing. a wooden leading edge is stronger than an aluminum one. the ailerons are wood covered in fabric, the elevators and rudder are steel frame covered in fabric and the cockpit area is steel tube frame covered by .025 aluminum sheet.

Shaker has had nothing done to it as of yet. Mucker was used a very little bit at the no.9 mine tour then we sold it to a local deep mine who needed one for driving gangway on the third level of their mine. If you want to discuss that I suggest you start a new thread.....
