Default Summer MOJO

The first one here is the original Alaska MOJO there is a long story behind this one but that is another thread.

To compliment the winter version there is now a summer version in progress. I had no idea it would become this involved from the beginning. But it started with a simple idea and kept growing and morphing into this right here. There is more I thought about adding but I think I will stop right here. Also the oval will be going on the side of the fuselage.

It is all cut out of Monokote using a mix between the windex method and trim solvent.

It's finally starting to look like a plane. It's just taped together right now but it's good to see some visual progress.

looks great Lom!!
How do you get the covering over the carbon fuse spar? Do you think there are going to be areas that "leak" behind the covering?

You coming to Nashbro? You can camp with us if your coming, got lots of room in the camper!

I really wish I could go but not this year. Mempho definatly next year !!!

I have not put it on yet, but my idea is after the tube is epoxied on I am going to run a strip of black over the carbon spar, and then windex the whale on that.

What I am bummed about a little is I fogtot about the servo cutouts so I will lose the cloud and some of the ocean. I turned it so the sun was toward the nose so I didn't have to cut that out.

Houston sounds like it's going to be a BLAST !!!!
