OK, everything checks out and it is ready for a maiden. I need to add a few more decals and other details but the plane is structurally complete. Can't wait for the winds to die down....

That looks really nice, Dave. And I'm a big fan of Parklite, too.

Good luck on your maiden,

Ok, Maiden success. Mounted a key-chain cam under the wing. Had some trim issues but no big deal and also one retract functions fine on the ground but in the air something stops it from functioning properly. There must be a Murphy's law regarding mechanical retracts for sure.

Except for having to invert the plane to resolve a gear issue!

Great looking 310. Im building one soon and have been debating on the retracts. Do you know what the model weighs with them? Does it fly like a heavy airplane or does it still feel like one of Pat's models?

Very nice build and job on the plane payne9999. I hope you have years of enjoyment out of her. I like the scheme. Not familiar with the military versions of this plane.
