Cliff, this is the one that was awaiting the paint shop I'm guessing. I know another yellow K7, and that colour flys very well! My JS 1/3 is progressing a little each day with the elevators complete, beautiful structures, and I recently obtained 2 KST wing servos that fit nicely into the tailplane servo trays. The home made release is about to be fitted to the nose block then to the fuz, filled and sanded. I see lots of fabulously covered and painted models with striking designs...would be interested to know how to achieve the basics of a reasonable finish, however it will be some months before the paint brush is needed. Thanks.

Cliff, still not 100% sure, is that a model or full size. The wing weight appears modellish....brilliant pic.
