Default Aviation Design Diamond Assembly/Build Thread

I know this has been covered in a few threads but I figured I would start my own. Exciting day!

Wish I had settings like these for my smart TVs. The commercials are horrible on YouTube.

Yea I was very close to ordering the Starwars Scheme! I Think that done up with the Pilot and R2D2 look great! I have also seen pics floating around of a custom painted sci-fi one a few years ago. That one looks great!

No Hard points for any of the surfaces. I think many have successfully installed the horns with lots of glue and it's been fine but I feel better adding the hard points.
Now I know they are secure.

If you purchase this plane from Ultimate Jet's to my knowledge they add the hard points
