just a note

Tim so far so good. I did go with the alternate wing.
The plans tiled just fine and were clear and concise.
I found them to be very straight forward and easy to build from.
Fun, Fun

Great job on the covering--that's a beautiful paint scheme!!

Can I ask what kind of film did you used to cover it? Can you use an iron setting that's hot enough to adhere the covering without melting or distorting the foam?

I'm amazed you can do color schemes this intricate using Zagi tape! This model sets a whole new standard!
