Juan - thanks. It's a 2 piece wing - detaches at the fuse. There are 2 hatches in the top - just not cut out yet. The engine nacelles were vaccum pulled in 3 pieces from plastic and lined with a type of cardboard in kind of a sandwich so that the wires can run through. ESCs will be in the fuse where the wing attaches and the batteries up front.

Looks really good. Is that a silver covering? Then panel lines with detail? If you do the panel lines, what will you use to get it to work on the covering?? W

Covering is chrome Ultracote. I will do the panel lines with a sharpie , then use flat clear spray to dull the finish down. This little battered test article shows the results of flat clear etc.
