Do you have any build pics to show us fans.

What color will you finish your wing?

As a scratch builder i'am impressed by your design work.

It's a 1/5 scale Horten IIIe which means it's motorized. The plan is to launch it via a short Hosemonster bungee and then climb on motor power up to thermalling height.

I have build pics here. I also have a discussion of the CAD design here.

The open structures will be covered with Sig Koverall. The rest of the birch plywood will probably be stained with MINWAX "Natural" and varnished with a MINWAX urethane.

Please let me know if you have any more questions.
