Default Sig 4 Star 40

Not a crash story but a "rebuild with old crash parts." Story. I had everything needed from about three crashed planes but no fuselage. I bought a new 4 star fuse kit from Sig and here I am.

4 star airframe with clipped wings O.S. .46 LA, Duraplane tail feathers and a Sig King Kobra canopy (with Cartman driving) I also built a bomb bay behind the cockpit for chutes, etc. With this and the Duraplane feathers, its a bit tail heavy so I will finish it up after shaving some weight out of the rear.

I think it looks pretty cool and with the four star flight characteristics, it should fly like a dream.

Good job.....now take that L.A. Trash engine off, and put on an O.S. 46 FX or AX. It will solve any tail heavy issues, and you'll have an airframe that can perform!!!
