Here's a the latest update. It's nearly ready. See pics below. Since I can only get to this in the evening, pics may look a little darker due to lighting I used in the house.

Remaining components:
  • Propeller
  • Pilot
  • canopy
  • design pattern
  • throw calibrations

ARF installation has been relatively run-of-the-mill with exception of:
  • Minor shaving of the fuselage had to be done to accomodate wing and ailerons movement (see pics below).
  • Provided servo screws were a little too big. I had to use smaller servo screws to not damage the plane.
  • Linkage fron servo to tail, rudder and wings requires more time than initially thought. Alignment and screwing in the screws took some time.

Impression so far:
  • I like the quality of the plane.
  • Nice color and clean lines
  • While taking the pics, the wing reminded me of TH P-51D so I brought it down for a quick comparison and they look very similar with slight differences.

I hope to finish remaining components tonight as time permit so I can maiden her early Friday evening/early Saturday morning.
