Big Ol Park Flyer emerging from my shop

I really like the Magpie for the way it flys and for its' size. IT'S LARGE! I'm not totally satisfied with the fuselage however. If you just build it to the plans it would be just fine. Stock it is a throw together belly landing trainer that can easily epoxied back together.

Well, I'm 30 years past the trainer stage and I like a little fancier airplane. I don't really like all the radio equipment hanging out in the wind. Also I love making takeoffs and landings. The attach point of the stock landing gear is weak and can wobble. So here it is...my under construction kit bash of the Mountain Models Magpie. I basically hacked out a full fuse out of foam sheet. I'll continue to post details and photos here as she comes along. Right now I am actually covering the fuse.
