By the way, you need to get that girl friend to pose with this wing soon!!!!

Nice build no matter what you call it. Are you thinking, or planning to do a build thread with details? I hope so. Thanks.

Not planning on a build thread - the build was just based on a standard set up as detailed in the X-8 thread: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1555543

The entire build, except the canopy (a SIG product) and RX, was done with HobbyKing products. The cockpit is the F-86 one and pilot is for the Mig15. Winglets are from the SkyFun pusher jet. Paint is just house paint test pots with WBPU as a sealer.

Sing out if you have any specific queries.
