Look what Ive found

By chance I did find a old lady for 40 $, a Multiplex Flamingo from the 80s-something, it is not in the best shape, but clearly fixable. I have loved that bird a long time for its beauty, a LHS has one in perfect condition hanging for display, and ive always admired it when looking up at it. Hopefully I will be able to restore it to some kind nice shape, but it will take some time I guess...

It has servobays in the wing already, but the spoilers are still driven by a central servo, planning to fix that as well. And of course the "nosejob" is the prio to start with...
