I made great progress.
I successfully made up the nose section, using some Dollar Tree 5mm foam for the skin.
I've assembled the fuselage. It still needs spackling and final sanding.

So here is the way ahead...

1. Fuselage: Spackle and sand. A thin coat of WBPU to toughen up the skin. Add the wheel attach points. Color her blue and color the windows and radome. Fabricate and add the wheels. Cut the wing saddle/hatch out of the upper fuselage and place magnets to hold it on.
2. Wing: Add a CF spar. Cut, hinge & horn an aileron. Color the wing.
3. Elevator & Rudder: Cut, hinge, horn & color.
4. Booms. Sand, color and attach to wing, placing horiz stab and aligning all.
5. Fins: Attach to the booms. Align and interconnect the rudders.
6. Servos: Elevator and Rudder are inset into underside of wing at booms. Decide if Aileron servo should be in fuse or in boom.
7. Rx & ESCs installation in fuselage.
8. Motor and cowl.
