A picture of the condition it was in.
Close up of the sad shape of the cowl.
Some stringer sections were broken completely.
I lightened up the airframe considerably. It was a VERY heavy plane.
The airframe after removing all the covering bits and pieces.
Cleaned up tail section.
Cleaned up and lightened fuse and tail section, with tail pinned temporarily in place.

Picture of initial fuselage sections glued together and set into wing section. Very early in the build process.
Fuselage sections complete and glue to wing - white stuff on fuse is lightweight spackle to fill in "low" areas.
Detail of motor mount and underside of aft section of plane. Stick is 3/8" basswood stick - intended motor (at present) is a TowerPro 2410-09, but that could change depending on how build goes (weight issues, etc.).
Better view of plane, now showing attached tails.
Detail of retractable landing gear apparatus. Hard to see in pic, but basically it's a bunch of carbon fiber rods and tubes. Build thread in "Scratchbuilt Foamies" section has more info.
Nice picture after one light coat of paint - starting to look MUCH more like a real F-14.
