The inspiration: The Yellow-Billed Magpie
Green-tinted celeophane on the bottom.
The tail is bare Depron. The stripes are Sharpie
The horizontal black stripe on the pod is carbon tow.

Here's the Gnome I built and flew in high school back in action after 20 years of mothballs. I replaced all the old Futaba AM gear with Hitech stuff and enjoyed it as a light-air sloper.
The modified Gome right before the re-maiden. Flat wing and ailerons gave this classic design a whole new character.
