Ok, a few pics. The airframe is done. Sanding is in progress but I have spent most of my free time on the tissue graphics.

Wheel rims. Laminated balsa disks turned in my wheel arbor in the Dremel and shaped with sandpaper on a stick.
1/16" bass landing gear leg assembly. Think it needs a length of carbon rod glued to the front leg just for piece of mind.
The completed bottom wing.
The reinforced landing gear pockets and dihedral joint.
The tail group. I like to keep the control surfaces attached for sanding then cut them loose and cut the hinge slots last.
