Robbe BAe 146-100 / Avro RJ70 - complete rebuild!

Hi folks,

since my A319 is on the edge of being airworthy id like to introduce my new project - a Robbe BAe 146-100 or Avro RJ70.
This has become a very rare model so I see myself lucky to own one.

The model will be powered by 4 Freewing 70mm EDF driven by th450 brushless outrunners. Each unit is supposed to deliver 900g of thrust at roughly 500 watts. The AUW id like to realize will be around 4kg which will give a very strong thrust/weight ratio 1:1.1 !
The RJ will also get flaps and retracts. If the weight is lower than expected i will also take a lighting system into consideration...

First of all i would like to show some photos of todays condition. I did start a couple of months before with the engine nacelles and the wing, so there is some progress already. But there is still a LOT to do!
Also, this build will have a very slow rate of status updates - this is a long-term project. After all this is a very rare model so it needs the right amount of attention and time to not mess it up.
