Wow!!! Beautiful work...well done...I'm impressed. You have some fantastic skills and that looks super

I definately want to see pictures of when you get it done with the pilot sitting in there ready for action.

No I haven't, except for the Inner gear door 9g servos which have a tendency to strip out because you have to manually open the gear doors in order to install the 2 forward wing bolts....these should really be more durable MG servos. I use HK 929's there

Also the earlier stock V1 and V1.5 Retracts have a bad tendency to smoke check and burn up...this is aleviated with installing the newer PZV2 retracts or E-Flite 60-120's

I love how you did the realistic pipeing, railing, and avaionic boxes behind the seat...would love to see more pictures of that....I may have to do that too on this new "Stang"... that really adds a nice touch
