You're doing great, congrats. Now carve a pointy nose out of Epp for it. It won't make it fly any better, but it'll look sexier.

I like the components hatch area, it isn't seen from above, keeps the airflow lines clean and probably forms a good launch handle. Triple usage and with flying wings, triple functions to any element is gooooood design

Thanks for the encouragements.
Note that the winglets are toe-out with 5°.
I know that some does not agree with the toe-out, but I tried both toe-in and out. Toe-out gives the best stability.
