Hi Bill, thank you very much.

Actually the tail feathers were not made by me, one friend pass me on a composite stab and rudder.

Regards.

Hi Kevin, you are right,

These one didn´t have the cheek cowls as it was the first test fuselage to see if it flies OK.

They are considered for the following ones.

Oddy.

Congratulations on your model! Looks good![sm=wink_smile.gif]

Is that your first fiberglass fuselage?

Hi Sahartman21, thank you very much.

For a Q40 type yes its my first fuselage, anyhow previously I have made some Q500 and other kind of planes fuselages with the same Hydrocal molds technique.
