While working with the flaps I didn't like their simplicity:





So I decided to add some details:

Finished product, not fully to scale but for semi scale model it looks better then before - I think...

Wow! Your Zero looks awesome Darod!
I pulled the trigger and gonna order the Zero myself this week. You’re Zero will be a great inspiration to mine.

Still undecided if I have to order the 2 or 3 blade spinner. I’m gonna use a Saito FG90R3 and due to “noise restrictions” on our field, I’m leaning towards a 3 blade prop. I read that the Biela 22x12x3 “semi scale” seems to be the perfect combo? Any thoughts on 2 blade props noise versus performance?

Landing gear clamshell door test:


Next step is some painting and weathering to the underside.

Thanks!
I hope it will work during the flight. My concern is weight of strut with the wheel - 460g. With additional load from clamshell door spring and wind force it will be hard work for my retracts - Electron Evo 40.
