Check this thing out. This guy made it from scratch. Motor to motor is 45", but with the diameter of the props included, would be closer to 60"(5 feet)

Have to add markings , then will start the air brush weathering .
Kahlog , was in a hobby shop in seattle today and it reminded me , did you own a Stork by ESM ?
One was hanging in the shop and I remember or thought you had one but it was burdened with QC issues ??? was that you ?

If you want a Storch, you'd be better off getting the Black Horse version. Most of the problems with the ESM were around the landing gear and how fragile they are as well as how it connected to the airframe.

Well made some progress tonight.
Made a paint mask , seemed to work fine.
Added rust lines , next I add the grease then its gets weathering and then exaust.
Dont know if you can see the rib details on the alerons but the method of raised tape worked really well .
