Default RE: GP Patriot 40 Kit Build

buzz,
there is no way you will get a .90 in this kit, even if you enlarge it. I would go with the Patriot XL for a .90-size engine. So far the build has had a few challenges, but nothing that was too difficult. I'm working out the elevator and rudder control rods now. I dont have the fuselage plan sheet, so this is a trial & error process. Once I get this done, I should be ready to finish the rudder install and the upper fuselage area.

I have been toying with ideas to best cover this plane. I'm still not sure what scheme I go with. My last plane had a black, chrome and red covering scheme. I am leaning towards a grey/silver base color with some distinct top/bottom color markings. Honestly, I dont know yet. I still have alot of building to do.

I have to redo my ailerons. I'm not happy with the way they turned out. They are very flimsy. I might glass them to increase the strength.
