Here's a couple photos of my GWS Pico Tiger Moth I should finish, and hopefully maiden, by this coming weekend. It needs the wings fitted (fuse bottom sanded to shape), I'm going to add bracing wires made with dental floss, and it needs to have the pushrods braced. They flex like crazy, I have half the rudder travel in the push direction as the pull direction. I rigged up a steerable tail wheel with a dubro micro-steerable wheel. And Snoopy's my pilot, I made him out of some styrofoam from a microwave I bought a couple years ago and saved the foam from. When I joined the tailwheel wire to the rudder with heat shrink tube, I realized that it was a stupid idea and my heat-shield wasn't large enough when I shrank the tube so I messed up the foam a little in that area, I'll fix it with some sandpaper, ultra-lightweight spackle, and paint.

Edit: some specs!
