So an update on some aspects of the build:

1) Wings and stabilizers. All wire cut and sanded to shape essentially. Carbon fiber rods have been embedded-need to fill in with light weight spackle. I am working on the wing box and will hopefully get the wings attached this weekend. For those of you pros- does the amount of CF seem sufficient or do I need more?
2) Fuselage- Cut into three pieces and sanded to shape based on cross sections. I am in the process of hollowing/coring out the sections.
3) Retracts and wheels are on there way- probably get trucks put together in Colorado this next week.

And thanks for the input on the stabilizer and wing angles of incidence.
