after looking into some different motor choices I think this thing deserves some scorpion motors. 1450Kv up from the stock 1100Kv with a 4S setup should be a mighty... enhancement.

Hey guys I've sort of been "away" for a couple days. My modem went out the other day at home and it was a couple days before my internet / phone provider could make the service call to come and replace the modem (like a 2 minute job....even if I were to do it!) I checked into the forums a couple times from my work computers when I had a few spare minutes. However I did not have any reference pictures saved for the SST on the house computer so I was unable to do any further modeling on it.

This afternoon the service tech came and replace the modem so I'm back in business!

Tonight I worked on the cockpit area.

~I first extended the top of the fuse into / under the canopy
~Then recessed the floor and created the "edge" to mimic the balsa sheeting
~Created the front fuse former (will be painted as a dash panel later)
~Created the "step" for the rear of the canopy to fit flush into
~Created the stringers / structure on the bottom corners of the "floor" in the cockpit
~Lastly modeled the headrest, pad and support tube as per the reference model. (Will decide on pilot figure later depending upon poly count)

I like the head bounce shock absorber. Are you going to make that dynamic?

You have some interesting shapes in there. I like how the instrument panel is recessed, and the lip on the side. Those ridges are nice! I'd have to think about those areas all evening before I could do them.

Your progress is great. Can you give a link to the build thread you are grabbing these pics from?

Thanks for the compliments guys. I will admit it is fun to re-create an existing model (especially one with plenty of reference pictures)

Here is the build thread from the designer: Super Sportwin Real Build Thread

Any updates? I posted over in Mark's thread about this build and he was very helpful in some specifics. I will set up the plane like his as the power 10s seem to have the gusto and then some already. Lots of great stuff over there about this bird. I may just have to build one.

I've done a little bit but didn't have a ton of time as I was watching the kids this weekend (my wife had to work the weekend) I've begun "carving" out the nacelles and building the internal structure that can be seen, along with your battery hatch that you wanted!

I was actually going to pm you in the very near future to see exactly what motor you wanted me to model, etc. If I can find a few pics / views of it I'll model what you plan to put in it.

Glad Mark helped you out with additional information (just read your posts) neat that the original designer is that helpful with the information, will make it that much more accurate! Thanks for thinking of this already.....I'll let you know when I get to a point where I can render a nice nacelle and structure.

Here are a couple shots to get you going. I have a Power 15 if you need some detailed shots of the label. The "Power 10" part should be easy enough to change. I know who the kid patrol goes. Thanks for taking this project on.

Just happend to have something close to what you are thnking of useing. I made the 400 for the Yak54, I just tweked it some. it is only a 12 stader motor, not a 14. You could remake the stader, but I don't think it would be worth the trouble, I don't think anyone can count them while flying.
Edit: see post 30

Thanks guys, I'll check the motor out flex. Don't see any reason that couldn't be used, it'll save me some time. No need to re-invent the wheel.

Use this this file as I made a couple of small changes. The lable was taken from Marks 250. then Gimp-i-fied.
The motor started as the DUALSKY from my foamies.
