Default 1/5 Hybrid Hellcat

Hey gang,
Here is a 'Cat of a different color. I like to call it a hybrid Hellcat. That's because the fuse and center section are glass, and the outboard wing panels are built up from plans drawn by Dave Andersen. Yeah, you guys know who I mean. Mr. Scale Desgner himself. Sure gives me more confidence that the bird will be airthworthy! The scale is 1/5 and the span is 96 inches. All access hatches and overlapping panel lines are molded in the glass parts. Sorry, no rivits....ya gotta do those yourself. If a guy were to add those, because they are button headed, it would really add depth to the surface when applied to the overlapping panels.
Anyhow, I'm probably not doing this in the proper order, but here are a few pics of the fuse and horizontal stab.
