Default QM15 Caudron

I just finished a DeBolt QM15 Caudron. I have not flown it yet, I did try last weekend but the weather did not cooperate. The engine is the K&B Schnerle 15 and is about the same age as the kit was. I have installed small pneumatic retracts. The plane is covered with 1/2 oz glass and painted with Nelsons paint. All the painting was with a brush. For some reason it would not spray very well. If you come across a kit of this airplane it is a carvers delight. I have more time in this than I care to estimate. The plane weighs only 38.5 oz so it should fly well and not to slow. Here are a few pictures.

Vicman, The switch placement had me going for a while then it suddenly hit me and it is where you see it. There is not much room inside that fuse. I can't imagine trying to put the old larger radio gear in it.
I will try and maiden it Friday after work, I will let everyone know how it went.
