Some planes never die.............

Going for a fourth rebuild....Always have enjoyed the G-V but it has seen better days. Will salvage the wing but everything else will be new. Going to be a glass fuse this time and the stab will be a little bigger. She's always needed more on the elevator side so I will correct that problem.
Let's get this party started!

EricM did some really nice civilian bizjet work.

I always wondered why things like a Cessna Citation (the straight winged one) wasn't modeled more.

Let the fun ????? begin.

Time to shape this thing. Not really to much work. Nose is a little tricky but basically it's a big hot dog.

Starting to take shape.

Did some sanding today...Man I forgot how hard it is to be staring at blue foam for an hour or more. Everything starts to look fuzzy and it's really hard to keep things symmetrical. I found that laying a piece of glass over the nose area really helps to see things better.
