Tony 65x55 Pitts Challenger

Here I am, starting with a new plane: the wonderful Pitts Challenger, designed and given to us by Tony 65x55. You can find the thread with plans and a lot of information on http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=774178

I started out with the Monobloc. This time I opted not to go EPS, but to try out that blue foam: Roofmate. Don't know whether it's the same one other US-based guys are using for e.g. BluBaby, but I think it's at least pretty close.

I also DXF-ized the plans (originally only available as PDF), so if you need it, here it is:

Here the first pictures, more to follow!
