At the risk of repeating most of the previous information, sharing pictures of my project with comments for each pic. Haven't maiden it yet.

This is how I routed the cables, just cutting inside the foam. Covered with red electric tape.
A view of my power cables. Lots of electronic soldering for this project! Gave me a chance to use all those nice connectors from Hobby King. Heat shrink very useful too!
I like to use extensions with the reveiver and make a clean setup.
Reveiver on velcro, in the back. Still waiting for those two satellite receivers to complete the setup.
This product was very good to remove a few dark stains on the paint of the plane.
Used epoxy and covered the plywoods with red electric tape.
I decided to use 1'' deep round plywood pieces, epoxyed to the foam, with pre-drilled holes for the motor mounts. Enough space for the wires to go underneath.
OK here's when I nearly lost the fuselage. I used a glue called ''Goop'' for the tires and it start attacking the foam like a skin eating bacteria!!! Had to put balsa and epoxy to fix it.
Balsa, Mono paste and epoxy: the end result was even better and more solid.
The foam was lightly altered under the tires so I decided to put pieces of plastic over them.
All set!!! This plane is big but very light. Should be a joy to fly according to the reviews I've read so far.
