Well done! Gorgeous bird. Is she scratch built?

Thanks!
It's an ARF. However, the plane came with strip ailerons and I wanted flaps so I took some of the aileron and cut into the wing to get the rest of the flap so they are to scale.
Also had to modify for the floats. Struts and strut mounts were all scratch built.

Very cool. All wood? Hangar 9?

Looks like solid work on the flaps, would love to see some close-ups of them and the hinges. Again, grade A work, mate.

Thanks again. Will have to try to get some close ups which I don't think I have on the computer.
This is a Slipstream 30cc all wood.

What could possibly go wrong?
It's a great model, well done. It looks fantastic! Love the struts especially, looks like a lot of careful work. Great job and congrats on the competition.
