Here's my F-100 I built back in Apr-June. It's actually my second Hun. The first one went down due to a cheap Chinese servo failing, live and learn.
Built from blown up Comet plans.
Started out life with retracts but they didn't hold up on our grass field so I glued the gear doors shut and made a her a bungee launcher.

Flys really sweet. Almost never go out to the field without it, must have close 100 flights on her by now.

Built pretty much to plan except for the semi-sym ribs Dan Eaton drew up for me.
