I haven't been working on the Rafale much as Im working on other projects (Been picking on it as I go along).

Anyways, I finished the elevon servo installation as you can see by the pics (Only thing left is the control rod).

This is the Rudder servo installation, even though I purchased the thinest servo I could find it was still not thin enough so I had to build a bit of a fairing to cover it up.

All paint prep work was completed on the rear fuse section and this is the first base primer (Tomorrow is white/orange).

The rear of the fuse is complete (Only thing left is to paint the blue on the tip of the vertical fin and create the blue teardrop shape around the canopy.....the easy part of the paint job).

Used to surf when I lived in Israel, coming to Canada I switched to Kiteboarding......never went back since, But stopped about 3years ago and now I do a lot of enduro riding on my G450X.

This week working on canopy installation (not my favorite thing to do especially when there isnt a canopy frame).

After that I am going to paint the blue.
