Not the greatest photo's...

But none the less here they are.

Botom of the wings on mine are same transparent red and white.
Fuse is all white. Black canopy.
My only concern at the moment is the fuse seems a little flimsy up front, but as I put in the servo tray and other stuff it should stiffen up. The wing is beyond strong

Here are a few more

This just shows the Spar, hinge gaps and fuse size. That spar rod is square, abotu 13 inches long and 1 inch across half inch deep I'm pretty sure my big butt could stand on it and it wouldnt even bend. The rudder is gorgeous, it has a neat rounded right side that keep the gap sealed to full deflection.
THe fuse is enormous with tons of room to work in it. Plus the elevator and rudder rods and housings are pre-run so its just install the tray and hook up the hinge in the surfaces.

I am very happy with this purchase. The plane is very light and I think it will fly far beyond my capabilities.

Another nice touch is that they have wire tubes running back through the wing to keep things neat. They have also cut out the end of the root rib and the joiner section on the fuse to allow for cable end like the Hoopes Connector (which I am having made as soon as I get Tom the measurments.)

Thanks to Liberator I don't have to do the detail pictures, Thanks Tom.
The weather here has been lousy, hopefully I'll get mine outside tomorrow for some pictures. Mine doesn't have the wire holddown for the canopy but I think I'll make one.

If I was a really bad boy I would get a cold and be out of work for the rest of the week and get it finished...but I can't see that happening. But I will bring it out.

Tom The flu is starting to creep up on you...and a bad day of building planes is better than a great day at work.

Is there any Carbon in the Fuse to beef it up in weak areas?

the fuselage looks like it is reinforced fiberglass with kevlar.

Wish I could see it... the swelling around my eyes still hasn't started going down... I will get one of these when I get a better transmitter. I think they're really beautiful. Right now my Eclipse won't reflex the whole trailing edge...

Whoa!!!! Someone posted that it's legal for woodie competitions. Is the rudder molded or built up? That would make a difference with some CDs. Just want you to be prepared...
