What do you mean Cessna. The gear leg has no right angles and it goes out from the fuselage at a 37 deg angle

Chad, I suspect that what Cessna is referring to is the orientation of the short block that will be parallel to the ground during landings.  The angle at which it is currently set is not flat relative to the axle.  Take a look at that piece from the Jenny-style gear that I originally had on my Piet.

After rechecking my plans and looking at pictures of other ultra piets the bottom block is not angled down to be perbendicular to the ground. I may still consider making mine so anyway though.
I have been working on my center supports some more though

Put in a little more work on the center section. The posts are test fitted. Keeping it all square when glueing will be a challenge. How did you all do it.

I have been working on my center section as well. My uprights are glued in and stained. I also stained the gear legs as well. I pit brake drums on my wheels and picked up the engine. Dont worry the engine will get some TLC before i fly with it.

Work has slowed down on the little piet project with the better weather I have been flying more than building. I have done a lot of varnishing I measured and cut the plywood for the top of the front. The brace wires are now in place for the center section. I have also tinkered with the engine a little.

I got the wheels back on and the instruments in the panel. Doing lots of sanding and varnishing. Wont be too much longer to set the fuselage aside and start building wing spars.

cdlwingnut- thanks for continuing to post progress photos. It's great fun to watch another airplane come together! Just be aware that we're all sitting here in our chairs watching what you're doing and it's a natural tendency to make comments from the peanut gallery. My comment just looking at the glue joints on your spar is that you shouldn't be too sparing with the epoxy. Use enough to completely fill the gap plus a little squeeze-out all around. You can always sand off or scrape off the squeeze-out if it's going to interfere with the next part of your assembly, but leaving part of the gap unfilled can create a stress riser at that location, and under stress the joint will want to separate at that point.

Anyway, you're proving the old adage that "those who say it can't be done should get out of the way of those who are doing it." Carry on ;o)

Thank you taildrag. One of the reasons for posting is so if someone sees somethkng they can say so. I did go back and fill those gaps and there will also be a sheet of plywood going over the whole spar so another chance to fill them too.
