Yep - looks like somebody said the Gee-Bee was the most dangerous racing plane ever built and somebody else said "hold my beer..."  :thumbsup:

3350? It sounds like a suicide machine. I like it!

Sprung from cages on Highway Nine?
Chrome wheels, fuel injected and stepping out over the line?

 :wacko:

Considering its a Brewster, was it built by a quiet kid from Jersey?  :wacko: :wacko: :wacko: :wacko:


Quiet????  :o

Got the wings extended on the leading edges. Needed to sand them anyway because of the slightly oversized rivet detailing  :o
Teardrop shape near the trailing edge will be removed to. I guess it was there because of the guns in the wings. I plan to cut the wings at black marking.

Engine nacelle removed. It shuts snug on the fuselage and wings. No need to PSR! YeeY!

Put some filler over the wingextensions. It's now curing and hope to get some sanding done tomorrow. Selected a propellor for the 'toy: came from an E-2.

Guess I was mixing Springsteen's lyrics...it happens, since he was a prolific user of NJ landmarks.

Fun fact.  Brewster's hanger in Newark still stands.  Its now a part of Contin-ited maintenance. ;D

Wing leading edge moved forward, reshaped and clipped.

That's looking almost 'sleek'. Certainly as 'sleek' as a racing Bearcat anyway.  :thumbsup:

Ye Gods that thing looks unnatural, at least for a Buffalo. It certainly deserves the name Satan's Toy.
Wonderful, wonderful.   :wub: :thumbsup:

A BIG engine and a HUGE prop, closely followed by an airframe!  ;D :thumbsup:
