Second update today, previous one was actually for work done over the weekend.
So I played hooky from work today (actually had to babysit my youngest) so I had some time to do some work. I concentrated primarily on mounting the rudder and tying in the tail wheel. Once I was done with that I completed the wiring and cleaned it up. Finally I applied some more decals. All that remains to complete the fuselage are the two final hatches, wheels and wheel pants
I will be working on the wings tonight.

Almost completed fuselage, front view.
Almost completed fuselage, rear view.
Rudder control horn and tail wheel steering attachment detail, the wire "L" bend is buried in the foam and the foam is reinforced on both sides with carbon fiber plates, the rudder control horn is boded both to the foam and the carbon.
Receiver and ESC compartment. The receiver has been wired and attached, the ESC is wired but I have still to mount it since I'm still not 100% sure where the plane will balance and which of the two holes I will need to feed the battery wire through.
Battery compartment, note servo wires tucked to the side to leave room for the battery flush to the crutch assembly. Eventually a little Velcro and a strap will be used to secure the battery.
