Had to correct the error in down thrust due to error in reference level. A thrust wedge is fabricated to achieve the down thrust.

A proper base and capping to secure the skid to the main landing gear. The capping is subsequently shaped.

I got all my graphics on tissue. Will let the colour settle overnight before covering the airframe.

Testing double layer esaki tissue on test airframe, doped and then spray with a light layer of satin finish polyurethane. Makes the tissue look more authentic and closer to weathered doped fabric.

Some mod to center section of the wings . Now rigging is an essential component that holds the wings together as there is absolutely no spars running thru the center.

Tomorrow I'll procrastinate
I see you posted more than 25 times without anyone saying anything, so I'll say "looking good"

+1, meant to comment a few couple of times. Rigging is very intricate, really makes the model, and probably doesn’t add too much weight. Looking forward to seeing it fly.
