advancing a bit...
The wood pack from Traplet is fantastic and the 3 sheets of plans are clear ...
I planked the exhaust tube with 1/32 very light balsa , the tube will be mylar for the Stumax
I don't know yet if I can use the intake duct from my previous Mirage or I have to make some with lost foam......

slowly advancing and start looking like a jet, everything fit perfectly. The plan is for the B and mines the C , you have to make the nose a bit shorter ..1/2 inch maybe
I try my old duct and I just to have to Dremel a bit one former and the thing will fit 100% ...Im very happy with that .
Know I have to decide where to fit the 8 or 9 cells . I will make a tray like my Spark.
here few pictures

This fan is one of my first Stumax ,its a Neu motor ( forget the winding)..I can go 10 cells I did in the past ..
In thisMirage its only room for 8 5000 ( light is better!)
Last night I finish planking the top of the fuse and hatch and filled all surface with sparkle stuff..from hardware store but Im waiting from better filler :Model magic
many layers to have a smooth surface.
But first I will start the top of wing ( the plane have small gigs in the bottom you have to finish top first ), with false leading edge and cover surface with 3/32 "light balsa
Then will start planking the bottom..
I want to finish this before winter to be able to sand outside!!!! will be lot of sanding filling....
