Britkit build off 2012 K K Falcon


Here is my entry to the britkit build off the K K Falcon.
It is going to be electric power rc, with a 1025 watt 950kv motor and 4s 4000 lipo, i now this is going to be well over powered, but i like my vintage model's to fly on very little throttle and stay up for age's, plus i already have 3 of the batteries and a 60amp esc. I started the model a couple of weeks before i was talked round to enter the build off,so i do not have any picks of the very beginning of the build.
Here a some picks of the build so far.

Good start BiB. It'll be nice to see a Falcon that won't get sprayed with exhaust residue and won't have a socking great four stroke sticking out of the nose!

I've added your build log link.

Thanks Sundancer
I was thinking making a mock sparky for it , and perhaps as there will be no rc gear visible in the cabin i may mock up some single channel rc gear to go in it to.

Thanks Sundancer and Sparks
I have a bit of a dilemma, i was going to make a fake sparky to stick out of the front of the cowl. Now i am not so sure if i want to spoil the clean lines of the front of the Falcon. Especially with the very modern covering idea i have in mined, witch is i think going to be covered in doculam , with painted red trim leaving clear panels on the fuzz, wings and tail .
Any feedback would be gratefully received.
BiB
