Seeing the swept and size of the rudder, are you really comfortable with it's size?

One thing to keep in mind about the Huck is it was designed as a flying wing with the tail to be used as a trim system not elevators..I plan to test this set up on one of my Steve hucks..But the wing airfoil will need some reflex like the Me 163 aifoil

So the Huck should have the elevator function on the ailerons, same as a Zagi, I know that model really dates me for flying wings.

Construction looking good!

I can confirm that the increased tail area works well and that it will act perfectly as the elevator. The wing surfaces are for ailerons only. We had flaps on the inner surface of the wings.

Watching with interest at your very quick build.

Hey John, I still love to see your Huck fly on turbine..just the coolest thing ever! and I know you did a lot to make it fly that well..My comment was regarding the full scale and I would like to try the flying wing set up on one of my huck just for fun..One think I like is yours also is proof that the bigger tail is all that is needed not the bigger wing(which IMO kills the look of the Huck)

Also one good thing is the real Huck never made it past mockup/prototype so any mods we do can be plausable as scale changes so more fun for all and still scaleish

You are right For this reason I very much enjoy building this model.

I still get a bit nostalgic when I see the video. The plane has now been scrapped after a lot of fun. Never mind I now have a large 6 engine Arado 555 that takes up much more room and have just finished the structure on a large Boulton Paul P111, so have even less storage room!

Anyway it is great to see more of the Ta183's being built.
