Looks like you are making good progress and it is starting to look a lot like an SE5.

I will add that the plastic surface was scuffed and cleaned with alcohol before painting

lovely model. Can't believe that weight - a lot let porky than the pensuti.
Looking good with the markings on.

The Penzuti will be fine at 6 oz or a bit more. It is an IPS model. the wing span it is the same. The penzuti wings have a wider cord and there are three of them so it is just a larger model. It is not porky take that back!

Hi Clancy,
now I've started to cover a few peices perhaps you're right it doesn't look quite as porky after all - so I will take that back - ..Anyway your SE5 looks great

Here is the plane it has flown and crashed and flown again. It is light enough that little crashes do minimal damage.
I flew it 3 mph wind maybe 4 mhp tops. The rudder becomes ineffective at that much wind. So it crashed a little. latter near dusk there was no wind and it flew fine.
There is a gym with basketball courts and I will try it there.
With the lead in the front the final weight was 62 grams about 2 and 1/4 oz

I wonder about indoor. I have flown it outdoors and I don't know if I can keep it within the size of a basketball court.
I may be a challenge.
