It really is a nice looking ship and I hope to have it flying by Christmas. I just finished painting the fuselage and will begin installing all new avionics soon. I will try to post some pictures in the next couple of weeks. One unusual item about the E4SL is the placement of the battery box. On the E4SL it was midway between the tail boom front bulkhead and the TRGB. (Almost directly below the cardin joint.) The straight E4s had the battery at the very aft end of the tail boom.
I just obtained a set of overhauled stainless main rotor blades and this was the last major hurdle to completion of the restoration.
I am very curious as to what other replys you receive about the E4SL.
