Thanks for the info guys ... I am a bit on the heavy side but I know where the weight is coming from.

I ordered two small 3.5V fans to stick on top of the esc heatsinks, as I don't trust the airflow to do it's job in spite of the open front geardoor.

Thats a good idea with the little fans. I had bought some small fans from radio shack to use in my electric converted B-17 several years ago. They will work on 4.8v, 6v or even a 2 or 3 cell lipo. I never ended up using them though cuz of space constraints.

I wont have any problem on this plane though. Thats for reminding me i had those.

Thanks for the comments !

I am almost done with the decals & minor detailing.

The "no walk" dashed strips on the upper wings required some patience (and some decal Micro Sol solution).

I also received from Ralle the correctly oriented "dog" for the JG fuselage emblem ...

Anybody have trouble raising Airworld? I have tried emailed them at info@airworld.de for almost a month now and no response. Help.

I phoned them direct from Australia and got things moving pretty fast, since they had not replied to my emails. They speak English so there is no language barrier.

Airworld, they never reply to e-mails ... a phone call is the way to go.
