You should be proud, all very nicely done. I did somewhat follow the Edge reconstruction. I did however notice none of them being glow powered. I have in fact used the Appliance epoxy white and black. It was a little .40 size Cassute that was built for a cancer awareness/fundraiser race we had when I was still in Sacramento. The airplane was flown a total of 8 flights between a couple test flights and the heat races. Afterward the airplane was given to my mother in law as she had just a week before finished her chemo treatments. In that short of time the 15% glow fuel did soften the paint and reduced the gloss considerably. I had to repaint the cowl before giving it to her.
