The spoilers are looking very sharp! When they are up, it will expose the flaps and look really cool and show off how the flaps are really hanging out there.

One tip someone told me was to reinforce the nose gear mount - add a hard wood spar, about 2" to 3" long on each side, right above the plywood plate. I never got any photos of mine. Just cut a slot in the foam right above the plywood and glue in the spars, then the plywood plate will glue to those spars, as well as the foam.

Did you recess the nose gear to get the wheel all the way up into the well? If so, how did you compensate to keep the plane level on the runway?
