Almost finished!

We should cover the model with our favorite iron-on covering.
If you are affraid not to achieve smooth fuselage covering, you can cover it with light filler, sand smoth and then paint with apropriate paint. But this will add more weight than just pure iron-on covering.

I opted for nontransparent covering, but if you want to admire your skill for the details assembly, you can use one of the transparent coverings.
For the finishing touch I use self adhesive orastik, to make some water wawes, name and silhouete of small fish.

Now, we need to install the RC equipment and power!

Each of the servos are put in heat shrink tube. Servos are then glued to inside fuselage sides. Ona a little bit higher than other in order not to interrupt one with another when in action. There is a plenty room for the reciever, battery, ESC and motor.
On the picture, the battery pack is 8x KAN 750, and the reciever is Graupner R700.
