    I just managed to find a bit of spare time to do a little bit more on this one. I have got some of the plastic body sections on the front and the rear wing is almost finished just the covering of the aileron's to go

    Almost there this probably will be the last pics before it will be finished.


    The decels are on but there are a few bits to finish off like the rudder control wires .

    Fantastic! I can just about smell the balsa :)


    If they were not so very expensive here in SA I would have got one long ago.


    Nice work.


    Just as a matter of interest, to substetute dope , you could also use celulose based sanding sealer, it works great and doesnt make the tissue "soft"
