More pictures. I started hollowing out the the rear fuse. I also redid the front of the intake so I could have a smoother, larger inlet. I made a dummy paper duct yesterday but unfortunatly I lost it.

The canopy needs some more foam under it for more curve. This of course means cutting more of the fuse.

Thanks MeGrim. Its one of my favorites too!

Working on the canopy right now. Re-working its position on the fuse. This also changes the shape of the nose to be rounder and more scale.

Looking good Adriel... I was looking at my ol balsa XL hanging up in the shed these days... thinking of reviving it now that b/less motors are dirt cheap compared to 4 years ago!!

Go with the indonesian scheme! Blue grey and white ;-)! The XL looks good in those colours!
