Great build. I like how unusual the plane is.

It is hard to judge the size from the pictures. Are you building it at the 96" wingspan or have you scaled it down?

Waiting for you next post!

I'm keeping the original size. 96" = 243.84 cm
Now I begin the construction of the horizontal rudder

I also started the construction of the vertical rudder.
Wing is in all respects with lots of dihedral.

Very elegant shapes Albyone. I am eager to see what it looks like when it is all assembled.

Ah, right, now I see Albyone - I was getting a bit confused as you kept referring to the "rudder" - lost in translation! It is the tailplane with the elevators. This is going to be a very elegant model, and as always with your projects immaculately built.

Yep, that's the word I would use Alby! It'll be even more impressive when you get those outer wing panels on!

How are you running the elevator controls down those booms - and does it have an operating rudder or will directional control be ailerons?
