A bit of progress today, with the fuselage done!
Next, the wings. Should be quick :)

Really like it now :)

Thanks, they are but badly!
They did not rescale properly but kept them anyway. Once painted, that should do the trick :)

Anyway, covering done!
One massive mistake at the root, did not doubled the rib, forgot, and it warped :(

Hello Fred,
Le fuselage n'est pas un peu long en avant du BA?

OOOhhhh, salut Fabrice! :)

Oui, tout a fait, entre 4 et 5 cms, je me souviens plus, par rapport au 3 vues.
C'est qu'il y a du monde derrière le BF! Entre les nacelles et le gros stab + doubles dérives, j'ai allongé un peu le nez pour le centrage.

C'est que le vrai est court du nez car le GAU08 dans le nez pèse presque 2 tonnes!

Ceci dit, il suffit d'enlever un couple pour retrouver la longueur plus maquette, mais pour le moment, ça ne choque pas trop je dois dire. On verra avec la déco, ca fera un peu plus "ramassé" avec je pense.

Bref, on verra après le premier vol :)

 ::) ::)Thanks Mick. We'll see after number 2 is built, but number 1 needs to fly first!!  :-\

Anyway, works continue while waiting for a decent weather.
Just have to plug one servo, and do the CofG and we are ready to commit aviation!

Ok so, I'm sure you are wondering how I made these wonderful panel lines :)
Kind of a Chinese RTF effect :)

I think I found THE method that will give the "old" way of using a marker a boot.. At least for me! I finally found what I was looking for for a few years, and so far, I never found anybody else who tried, or even mentionned it.

Here is how:

You're welcome!  ::)
