Dare Hobby Halberstadt, nearly finished...

Oh man, after seeing some of the beautiful planes in 'scale modeling' I'm not sure I want to post here.

I needed a scale model in my hangar, and I needed a WWI bipe. So here it is. I've had it for 6 months, had a real hard time starting the kit(when they say advanced, they mean advanced!) I know it's not perfectly scale, as I've taken a few liberties here and there for functionality and personal preference. I still need to do all the cockpit work, and finish some bits here and there(notice the stealth rudder) but it's taking shape finally. Bear in mind I haven't attempted anything scale in 10 years or more, lol.

Since I don't see too many, I thought I'd post it.

Dare Hobby Halberstadt CII
WS 27 inches, wing area 180 inē
IPS S2 with 7.5x5 prop
micro servos/rx/esc
Kokam 340 2s or Etec 250 2s depending on cg

Thanks guys,

Tim, do you remember when it was sticks?! Sure came together fast! I'm going to get a little more done on it and post some clearer pics of details as soon as possible, assuming my wife hustles the camera from work.

PS... I hope my statement about the beautiful planes and not wanting to post made sense. I am just amazed by some of what I see and know that MY modeling skills are simply inferior when compared to you guys.
