The 104 is the one I built to be similar to the F20. This one is a bit different. I wanted it to be a good all-rounder (so I can fly it more often), more like the Slope Scale stuff. It has a friendlier wing, a lot more tail volume, and should build out a bit lighter.

Hopefully I can get some paint on it this weekend. Still thinking about colour scheme. I'll probably spray it white (cos I have a heap of it) and dress it up in vinyl.

I did some wet sanding today. Just got to face inside the hingeline then it will be ready for primer. Hopefully we get nice painting weather tomorrow.

Hopefully my eyeballs and fingers can keep up. I haven't done a whole lot of flying since Holly was hatched

I got the hingeline faced tonight. Weather is looking good for painting tomorrow. Awesome!

I have no clue what kinda design I'll do in vinyl. Anyone got any good ideas?

I'm seriously liking the skinny fuse and that last shot shows it off nicely.

I need to get a pic of it next to my BD5. That makes it look even skinnier!

Today I got it primed and topcoated. Still got to get some black paint so I can do the bottom of the wings.

Still haven't decided on the paint/vinyl scheme yet.
