Hey Figure9,
In the 1st photos that you posted of the pondmaster, What did you use as a filler? ( The brown along the seams ) Also did you cover it or paint it?
I am at that point now.
Thanks Steve

Lookin good! For sealing the seams, I used polyuerathane glue on the inside, and then on the outside I used soome silicon sealer.

Hi Steve,

nice build!

I seal my seams with water resistant white glue.

The bottom of my Fuselage is covered with tissue and water based parquet varnish to make it more scratch resistant. You can also use white glue instead of the varnish.

Greetings Roland

I went ahead and used Hot glue and wet my fingers then spread it out evenly. This is gonna be great. Not all I have to do is work on the wing.

In this case it is not a good idea to use white glue

I use original Depron for the whole plane. 6mm at the fuselage and ribs and 3mm to cover the Wing. No Balsa is used. Only two small pieces of plywood for the Wing mount.

Here some pictures of my plane (small version)

Remerk,
I have a question about the wing Span. What is the distance from the 1 wing panel to the 2nd panel on the xl plans. It doenst show it anywhere. In your pic did you cut the wing in 3 pcs or 4? I just need to know the length of each pcs.
Thanks Steve

At my next Parkflyer i will try this technique.

@Steve: The Wing is built in 3 pieces. One middle panel and one on each side. Each panel has a span of 476 mm (18,74").

Greetings, Roland
