I've not been super-productive on this build the last few days but I've managed to do a few things. Primarily I've been working on the tail which is pretty much complete except for a bit of covering, some of it is covered though as you can see from the pictures. All of the electronics and linkages is sorted and ready for final assembly.

Those little metalic things are (my girlfriend tells me) something meant for hairstyling, I use them for clamping everything at this scale! They're strong enough but do not crush the balsa.
Tail wood done except for a bit of sanding
Aileron surfaces covered, linkages are also completed using a bit of 0.5mm piano wire (not pictured)
The whole rudder covered in so-lite. Stabilizer simply slots in the gap where there's a piece of wood wedged in right now.
Water-slide dashboard sticker adds a bit of looks, this is one of the nicer aspects of working with a kit, wouldn't have made something this nice myself.
