Great design

After looking very carefully at all the plans available here in F3P, checking out any videos I could find, and generally fantasizing about which one has the sexiest lines, I have begun a Cirrus

From the start, I knew I was after a design that emulates as closely as possible the classic F3A lines of its big brothers and sisters. Obviously there are compromises between the two types, but I think the Cirrus has some sweet lines. The video of his design in motion (by AnthonyF3P) sold it for me. Looks like a very slow, precise flyer. Can't wait to get it all togethor and see for myself! Any consensus (Anthony?) on how best to brace and reinforce key areas with this bird? LE carbon strips, or round stock at mid chord (haha, there is no chord )? Maybe I'll try something new here from some things I've read about lately. Anyways, thanks for the great design Anthony! Here's a pic of my cutouts (cellfoam88). I'll post more when it starts coming togethor.

Ciao
