The finish process is my usual one these days...Solartex and 2K paint on the fuselage, and film on the flying surfaces.

Specs:
SCALE: 1/4
SPAN: 4.25m
A.U.W. 14lbs (6.35Kgs)
Wing Section: HQ3514-3512

Motley's version is also complete and awaits its maiden...

Thank you, Paul... The maiden flight went without a hitch, and for the first time, nothing needed post-flight adjustment. This could be due to accumulated experience, or just sheer luck! (You're right: definitely the latter) It's a lovely model to fly, even if I would say that, wouldn't I?
Hopefully, next month we will be able get some more action pics and video...

Not a fully annotated plan, Andrew, more of a working drawing, but all the info you need will be there, plus, if you want to cut out your own parts, PDF's in A4 format. c_williams30@sky.com
