Finishing (Painting, etc.)
Notice the smooth nose section curvature I created It turned out much better than anticipated. The secret is in enlarging the "F0" bulkhead by about 40% in area wich placed the tip of the nose at station -13. This has increased the volume of the ballast compartment so much that a battery can be fitted inside. This will counter the balance problem with my installing of a O-540 Lycoming.
Ram air scoops in the cowling similar to the Berkut will provide sufficient cooling and air intake for the O-540. I have tried to keep to the Cozy lines and style with a touch of Berkut. The O-540 is just a little to large to permit keeping to the NACA air intake. my cowling is 46" from the Fire-Wall to the Cowling Lip. I will be using a 4" propeller extension.
The black marking near the cowling lip shows where the standard Cozy cowling ends.
