Fab day at CMFC today, in which the Gull had her maiden flight. Flies beautifully, and thanks go to the the BC corporation for the decals, and Motley Enterprises for the action pics...

After long discussions with my legal team over the Xmas break, I was advised to call this and all future models as being Near Scale. I have it on the highest authority that this will be enough to keep me out of Scale Jail... ;) (Get out of that, Inspector Flewseau)

Beautiful Chris... Now if you're not too busy you can fly over and finish my 1/4 scale Minimoa. If it isn't too much trouble of course... :?
To err is human, to leave home without the wing joiners is sheer stupidity.

Wellllll...As you mention it..The fuz is painted but needs cleaning up and repainting (don't ask why)...The wings need solartex covered, ailerons attached and painted..All the waggly things set up, Then we're good to go. Oh, I need a female pilot. ;)

The story so far..

With a hefty 2lbs of lead in the front, the AUW comes out at about 21lbs. I have a fully drawn set of plans for this model.
