DoctorG, Do you have any photos of your construction process? We would all love to see more.
Hi Thanks. I do have a few construction pics but they don't show any more than the ones you have posted on page 5. They are much more comprehensive than anything I have.
For the record the finish is Solartex with Spectrum Fuel Proof paint hand brushed on the fuse. and spray acrylic on wings and tail feathers.

Decals are inkjet printed onto self adhesive vinyl and then Clearcoat.
If anybody wants any specfic pics of particular areas let me know and I'll try and oblige.
