By the way the test of the black cub with yellow stripes proved black is not going on my planes. I just can't see it.

Don't hold me to it but I think I am going to go with this color scheme, 99.9%.

Somehow, I don't know how, the last piece of wood was just glued to the top wing. Starting tomorrow I will go back to the fuse and add in strips for the panel screws and such. Then start sanding.

I have built the front of the center cabane. Now for the hard part, the rear piece. Sometimes getting two pieces identical is the hard part

I have spent most of the day sanding and it will probably take most of the day tomorrow.
