Hows the weather down south Joe?
It might be just me,i might just be jinx'd.
When i finish a model in its entirety, then attempt a maiden, they always hit terraferma.
Now when i throw the ugly monstrosities naked they all come home fine.
So ive learnt my lesson, they all get maiden before any detail work is done.
I wont even sand the last coat of resin/microballoons untill its proven itself flight worthy.
Then again i know what its like, just having the bird sitting on the bench all naked while i wait for better weather.
Best of luck with the maiden.
PS. Do you use both magnets? i normally will use one in the fus, then a piece of light metal in the hatches. saves a few grams in weight anyways. For my metal i use a piece of the break away razors very light.
