Ok, with a slight delay, here's the promised update with wings covered (mostly) and attached. I've got a very good excuse, I've been buying a house. Come summer, I'll have plenty of space for building and storing planes, and probably no time to build them...

Left to do:
- Cover a few pieces
- Sort out some sort of battery mount, velcro might be good enough
- Build + cover + mount wing-supports, definitely the biggest job left since I want to get the wings perfectly straight with the same amount of dihedral etc.
- Make and mount some windows
- Apply stickers
- Test-fly

I've already performed the obligatory ground-tests on the floor, as soon as the glue on the wings dried. The turning circle is quite wide, so taxiing this little bird won't be brilliant, but it's better than it would have been without a steerable tail wheel at least.
