4.2 meter slingsby T53

Hi this is my latest build a T53 at 1/4 scale. It will be a wood fuz and foam venreer wings and built up tail. There are more pics on scalesoaring UK web. It may be a bit ugly but I like the silver ATC scheme and I have not seen a large scale model yet.Name: IMG_20160520_225228.jpg

Wings are now sheeted. I could not help but leen the parts together to see how it looks. It looks like it is going to be a big aircraft for a 4.3 meter span.Name: IMG_20160716_190113.jpg
