I love it. Your skills did not desert you during those 18 years of building inactivity.
Well done.
Keep us posted on progress and get video of the maiden flight.

Thanks for the kind words ,I'll keep posting as we go along with rest of the build, I was into the water world of model boats as you can see on my work bench but now cost of the air world is a lot easier on my pocket book and I plan on some more builds

Ha! That explains the skills.
I enjoy my basic FPV setup, although just now I am waiting for a replacement camera to wend its way to my door.
I think your "kind of OV10' will make a very good FPV ship.
Good luck with it all.

Sorry I don't have scale to weigh it but I can tell you she lighter than any balsa wood I've ever done

Beautiful build and well-proportioned.
Should be a great flyer if wing loading is reasonable and you've got a decent spar in the wing.
