Forgot to mention-nice craftsmanship on the radio hatch on the right side-blends in nicely and I almost didn't notice it-which is the whole idea...

Default Fuse cradle

This is what I use for the fuse-it is designed to allow for upright or inverted use.
When you start flying birds this size, a proper cradle is vital.
I have found that the CARF '47 and Corsair are about as big an airplane that one man can manage by himself. Any thing larger requires 2 people to load and unload, which presents it's own challenge.
