man thats awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!

looks like were in the same boat andy. with those huge packs, im looking at around 42lbs now.....geez. that paint job was about 3 lbs, add in the canopy and other body work i did. complete airframe is 22lbs. (aka....yikes!) ill have 10kw or so, so it should fly, and it should be fairly fast, but its going to fly JUST like a real one lol. a little doggy like!

i got the black on the fwd fuse, and i scotch brited the whole thing to kill the gloss, then i put the decals on. it looks pretty awesome. those runs were really hard to get rid of, so you can pretty much still see them. i hope once the panel lines are on, the eyes will be distracted. haha.

man, after all this work, i hope it flies lol
