Great build but what a lot of clamps and fiddling to put the fuselage sheeting on. Its too late for you with the fuselage but for the wings try the PVA and hot iron method as described in the Ghost Squadron tutorial videos. This would have also worked for the fuselage sheeting for future reference.

Much easier and quicker.... and no need for a bucket full of clamps !

Hello John,

Thanks for your positive reply and comment about "sheeting" the fuselage. I appreciate !

At earlier stage I have seen the video(s) you are reffering to and understand the "easyness".
I choosed for sheeting the fuselage with the largest pieces I could put on at one time.
It looks a hassle, but with simply making a paper template it's a matter of "half a hour work".

And for the matter of clamps . . . . . it's a great help to have a lot of those. I can tell you . . this Flamingo is straight as an arrow in all directions. So are the wings.

For the wings I'm certainly considering the sheeting with hot iron and PVA.

Regards,
Rick

No servo's in the tail section, saves weight. Pull-pull for both elevators.
