The ailerons are fairly simple: just built over the plan. Then it's time to fettle the winglets. (These at least are scale, as there is one Bergfalke 4 on the 'net fitted with them)

In a last-minute decision I decided to fit the spare Turnigy G32 that I had lying about. (A wise move as it later turned out)

I've used my usual finishing method: Solartex and 2k paint on the fuselage, and HK film on the flying surfaces...
