Your plane looks great. Can you share some close up shots? Maybe even mention some of your modifications.
I just started a Ziroli build, and have many decisions to make still.

This reminds me, I made a mold of mine, but haven't actually laid one up to see how it came out. I had flipped my 150 off a roof and smunched the owl. Since I couldn't find a replacement, I repaired it, and made a mold to make a replacement. Funny thing it, the repair added weight, which mine needed, so I put it back on and never made the replacement.

I am currently putting together my first P47 gasser. It is a VQ P47 Razorback. A baby in comparison to some of the beautiful models on this thread.

Yesterday I took the TF kit from second hand. The guy who started the project desined the wings and fuselage for China retracts. It would be difficult to replaced them and use the Robart retracts. We will see, if they would be good for this Jug. I prefer the Razorback, going to make the ridge.

Just waiting to maiden my T/F P-47. I ended up with a 3W 80cc, spinning a 24x12 prop. Balanced with the batteries at the wing bolts. Should be plenty fast!
