Mold parts painted. Soon I can start with the last part of molding.
The paint has to dry for 24 hours and the plug has to be waxed five times.
Now I can start building the wing and stab and making the building instructions with pictures.

The belly pan mold has been waxed 5 times and put in a gelcoat.
Tomorrow I will make the first belly pan.
I have started glueing the leading edges and waxing the fuse plug.

Glueing the leading edge with Elmers white, shaping with a razorblade tool, sanding with a block in the airfoil contour and final fine sanding with a piece of sandpaper 150 gritt pulling on the ends and make the LE with a nice rounding following the airfoil.
Do not make the LE sharp.

Now I will have to make the routing files for the wing and stab tips und cut the tips.
The middle part of the wingtip is thin plywood and on both sides it is balsa.
More tomorrow.

Izzy,
I will make a deluxe kit with glued, shaped and sanded leading edge and tips and a basic kit where you can do this yourself.
You will have to glue the wing together, glue in the wingspar, glue in the servo plate. Glue in the firewall, stab and servomount.
The plywood for the wingbolts have to be glued and the bolts for the bellypan has to be mounted. Ailerons are complete ready for use. Glue the cnc controlhorns in the ailerons and elevator. All parts are cnc cut. Price of an OPS can I tell you later.
Difference between Jett and OPS can I not tell you. The wingspar, servo's, ailerons and retracts are cnc cut out of the wing.
Regards,
Look.

Any idea of the cost? This is the 5 port, rear intake, rear exhaust engine, right?

I will glue them together with 24 hours epoxy.
So tomorrow they can be glued on the wing and stab.
In the mean time I can work further on the last side of the fuse mold.

Sand the wing 90 degrees on a flat underground with a block before glueing the wingtips with Elmers white.
Use rubber bands to hold 4 wooden paint sticks:
