Default 4*60 80% done

Well, with the exception of the wings...things seem to go pretty smooth on my 4* build...

Thanks to Minnflyer for the suggestion of the red / Blue, I went with a patriotic RED WHITE BLUE design for the plane. I plan to make the same on the wings horizontal on the top and vertical on the bottom...

Fuse so far weighs in at 2.2lb, and the TT .61 is in at almost 2 lb. I may have a 6lb airplane when I'm done (hope so anyway)

I got bored waiting for my balsa to arrive so I can try to build a left wing (2 right wings aint gonna fly it...) so I threw Gene Simmons (YES... Full KISS makeup!) in to pilot it. I also connected (read: Stuck a dowel up his bum) a linkage to turn him when the rudder moves. I just wish I had room for his guitar under the canopy...

I also threw in a cockpit with little gauges. I just got into the building and couldn't stop

I'll post some more pics when the plane is done and ready to fly.

Well, if anyone deserves a stick up his bum...

Except for the pilot the plane's looking good. But the pilot's all you have shown us.

Haw.

This is the only other pic I have of it, and it came out kinda blurry. I was in a hurry (I am supposed to work at work...pfffttt)
When she's done I'll post some more of my new pride and joy...
