Well after several months Im back at it. Finished up the left wing speedbrake with final fitting and gluing the top plate on. Cut excess sheeting off root for fitting onto the fuselage timorrow. Tomorrow I will start the rt wing speedbrakes and then the main gear doors. Plan is to get wing roughed out and be ready for sanding and glassing when weather warms up. Next indoor project is all the little ABS plastic fuselage.doofers. If anyone interested in buying this monster shoot me a pm. I will sell it at my cost. Kit w/fixings and JR8411s. $3800. This is a $6000 kit that all the hard stuff is completed. I also have a Jet Central Rabbit 100SP (24#) for it. $1800.

Added ruddervator anti flutter stuff. The leading edge is a large brass full span weight that was installed with a jig and router bit included in kit. The ailerons are basically the same.

Nice scale touches. When I finish the other ruddervator today they will be complete and ready for prime. Wings are glassed and will finish speedbrake packages and gear doors next. That will complete the major build areas of this project. Cockpit, lights and painting will follow.

The last bug push. After I get the doors working on this thing I am joining gear doors anonymous. After these are done its time to start some finish work. Plan on getting it to the ARF stage by the end of May.

17 months after I started this project the construction is complete as I finished the gear doors today. I will mount the nav lights in the tip tanks this afternoon and tomorrow the sanding and painting beging. I plan on flying it this year.
