Default Schweighofer/Hanno Prettner Curare ARF build

Hello all, the new Hanno Prettner Curare ARF has been mentioned in several topics here, but I thought the plane deserves it's own thread. I have been fortunate enough to have one of the pre-production models for test. It's absolutely brilliant, and since my Swedish colleague made his Curare electric, I'm building the glow version. I have posted the first part in the series on my blog:

The build is in three parts, pt. 2 is coming soon. My plane is complete and I'm just waiting for fair winds and a frozen lake on which to fly it.

There's been delays, first due to production problems - the producer Schweighofer in Austria did not want to release a plane that was not perfect. As stated in the current Schweighofer catalog, the company has a long personal and professional relationship with Hanno, and it was important that both were satisfied with the quality. The first shipment was due in November 2012, but unfortunate circumstances caused the container to be stuck in China, and expected delivery is late january 2013. Fingers crossed that the shipment gets to Austria ASAP. Schweighofer ships internationally: http://www.der-schweighofer.at/en

Attached a photo of my finished model. If you have any questions about this ARF I'm happy to answer.
