I finally got my 50% off Swift today. It is a larger plane that I thought it would be and that is never a bad thing. I got the extension package and lighted instrument panel too. The covering and paint job are definitely sub-par (especially the cowl and canopy) and I probably would have returned it if I had paid full price.

Conversely, I have their Storch too and the covering/paint work are immaculate.

The "b-grade" defects in the hatch aren't bad but I will be patching them when I redo the covering.

Luckily the crappy finish makes me feel better about ripping it all off.

I will likely go with either of the Swift's below for a color scheme.

I also intend to add dihedral to the stabs.
