Looks good. That wing has a lot of dihedral in it so it should be a pretty stable flyer.

The original design was a free flight. 1939. 3" per side.

Thanks.

I thought Brad was fixing me a snack, I went in the kitchen to see
what it was..

He was boiling a piece of plywood to make the battery compartment
cover...... It has a slight curve in it. He knows about curving plywood.

I boiled some plywood once. Never did get tender enough to eat though.

Next time, throw a carp in the pot.

Be careful about which you eat, though. The soft, tasty one is the plywood, the gross one with splinters is the carp.

Model planes and boat building! My 14' St. Johns solo. Northern white cedar ribs and planking, ash gunnels and thwarts, cherry decks and cane seats. Took me two months to build it.
