Personally, I've always liked the Dutch 323 Squadron bare breasted 'Dirty Diana' scheme but getting that one past your wife and having to have a bag on the tail when kids are around would be a pain.

Something like this would be cool for a two tone camo.

We probably won't go there Dan

You found it didn't you Hans. Yep, that will be it, a few numbers location different.

Working on the bottom and the intake. It's not done and will require some serious hardening.
And the power system will need to be lengthened.

My hero Sparky has mailed the canopy, can't wait to get it and fit it.

Spending time fixing my mistakes. I always make a lot of them in my builds.
Found that I had one wing panel 7mm out of line with the one that was setup properly. Would have made for interesting flight characteristics I 'm sure.
So I cut off the back locator and moved the front one to line it up. Of course this meant reshaping the fuse to transition well.
I rolled a paper tube and put a cone on the end to help route the power wires Needed to get it in before the battery box it glued in.
Cut a 1/4" ply motor mount, used blind nuts and 6-32 bolts for the motor. The mount is glued in and will need gussets to strengthen.
My removable exhaust cone will be shorter than scale so I'll paint part of the fuse as exhaust.
Internet problems from the storm now, I'll post pics later.

Thanks Marty, deuce

One step forward, two steps back. That's what you get for not planning ahead.
I need the esc up front close to the batt. So how do I get air to it. Hot escs are just asking for trouble. The intake is too far back, would be long esc/batt wires and that's a no-no. So I decided to put it in the chin under the cockpit. Made a little compartment for it and it will sit in there flush and cool with outside air.
Needed another tube in diff location for the wire from the esc to the battery.
Then I built in the front and rear cockpit decks.
If you think it looks like I'm doing all I can to keep from sanding all that belly, then you would be right! But I will need to get on it so I can glass it.
