Well they passed the acid test. Not 5 minutes after I finished them, I managed to knock the center section off the bench while cleaning up. And of course it landed antenna side down. After kicking myself, I picked up the wing only to hear "snap-snap" as both the antennas snapped back into place. Happy happy joy joy!!! Not a scratch on either of them.

Next up is lamps. Rather then buy a kit, I built my own. Got the normal red/green nav lamps in the wings. Four (4) landing lamps in the wings, 2 per side. A pair in the cowl.
A flashing red vertical stabilizer lamp, and a strobe in the belly.

I wired up a pair of 555 timers to run the flasher and strobe. What a wiring joy, TWENTY SIX (26) wires running thru the craft. Whole system runs off a single tiny lipo cell. Just have to figure out some switches to turn em on/off.

Here's some crappy pics I took with my cell phone camera.
