Fueltank glued in place. I use 24h expoy glue mixed with a thickener and some dye. I do not know how this compares to Loctite 9462 or 9466 but it applies in a simular way useing a larger syringe. The nozzle extends if needed by useing any kind of fuel tubeing or even a large needle.

Small steps now as the glue needs good cureing befire next step of the build

Engine mount glued in place. Carbon flock did not work with my syringe technique, only the glue came out of the nozzle leaving most of the flock in the syringe like a sponge. Not a big problem, but a little more dripping then I would have liked. As always alot of aligning and eyeballing before fixing it to cure. Feels solid anv very light. CG still seem to be within reach

Service panel with filling of fluids, air and charge of the battery packs. After fitting the panel I found that this apparently is a pretty standard feature of a turbine RC Eurofighter. Why google first, when you can do it later? haha






V1 which did not fit due to the noswheel. [&:]

The canards are beeing balanced with lead shots. I do not know if it's needed but it won't harm I guess.

Landing gear and servos are in place. The parts do fit well. The linkages are a bit beefy, but I beleve it adds marginal weight and provides a good rigid setup to match my Futaba über servos

I do not know if I ever will disassembly the airplane but I added multiplex type of connectors if I decide to remove the wings in the future.

Anymore progress? I love that little jet, and I think it's going to be on my short list for future projects.
