Update - In pictures...

Made a fair bit of progress yesterday, wing fasteners are in (couldn't use a pin through the CF tubes as people have suggested due to thickness. I will certainly use a pin and ticker tubes next time!)

Motor is Bolted on and ready for a test this evening. I think this will need to be run up outside due to its size!

Hot wire bow is made, just waiting for my transformer to cut the block of polystyrene. Fibreglass should be here tomorrow to cover polystyrene tail.

Going to spend a lot of time smoothing the wings tonight, They have been liberally covered with polyfilla 'onefill' super lightweight filler, for sanding. Then will cover with the Varnish brown paper method to get some twist strength as they twist quite a lot currently. A bit concerned the varnish wont stick to the polyfilla, but as long as there's a skin, i guess that doesn't matter...

The orange tail in pictures is useless, and will be replaced with the EPS, Fiberglass version for strength.
