Peter Rake's Albatross DII

Though you might like to see this. I'm assembling the kit for a clubmate (he will cover and paint it).

Only the forward section is glued, the rest is just dry-fitted to check for accuracy while the front dries. Liberal use of the T-square to make sure that everything is straight. Nicely laser-cut kit. The lightening holes are mine, though (saved 1.2oz). That's the weight of the servos, not bad!

The tail outline is ready, I'm keeping it on the foam pattern for protection. I'm going to sand and frame it up once the fuselage is out of the way.

Went to couple of hardware stores and they don't have 3.75" O-rings in stock. Will have to check plumbing supplies places or find an alternate way of doing the wheels.
