Hmmmm not sure what I could offer.. but the straight kit would have just gone together nice and easy but that's hard for me to do . I have a feeling you'll be done before me

Spent a bit of time today on the transition from the stringer fuse side to the wing fairings... ready to continue covering...
A bit of a frankenstien approach as shops were closed and I didn't have a single sheet but it came out nice and smooth with the filler. So now I have a platform to secure covering from the 'faux' fuse side to the fairing in a smooth transition

I'm getting a bit concerned about her weight but live and learn on how to do things going forward.

Looking great. Must say this has been one of my most enjoyable builds, flying models yet. Mines electric g-46 on 5s batts turning 12x8.

I remember this one and the mods to the fuse, very nicely done.
I always have covering issues it seems so it's good I'm not a perfectionist in that area . Yours looks smooth as glass
I would love to go with gear under the fuse for simplicity but almost 100% of the golden age racers had gear on the wings and since this is some sort of fantasy scale I'm trying to follow through on it.
