I'm not native English speaking so these names are more to be treated as inspiration rather than suggestions:

X-not
! X. (not X)
Near Miss. (almost a Fiasco)
Success (not a Fiasco)
Succ-ace (not a Fiasco)
For Cecilia. (. 25 ci = four (for) cc. The short form of Cecilia is Cissi in Swedish and is pronounced like "see-see".)

I like your build. I'm not familiar with the Fiasco - any links or pictures?

Some Fiasco pics.


The model in this build thread is based on the Fiasco, just a smaller version. Here are some pics of my Fiascos. First two of of the Fiasco Sport, and the second two are of the latest version of the Flap version of the Fiasco.

Thanks for the name suggestions, however, I think I will be calling this plane "Rascal". I think it will be fitting.

Major construction is now complete. These pics show the model set together and is now ready to cover. Time to decide on colors to be used and a pattern.
