Right finally the kit arrived yesterday afternoon and was eagerly un-packed and checked to make sure it was all there, it was then i realized I hadn't ordered the I/C kit for it  🙄  so straight to the pc to rectify that error. 

So today I have got the wings pretty much done and both fuse half's sorted so tomorrow I will take and post some photo's of progress so far.

Thinking of going for a .61 up front and some sort of black and  red  livery, still not really decided but I would like a black fuse with some sort of contrasting art work, anyway stay tuned I'll post when I have made my mind up, but you will all see it when it gets it's maiden flight in a week or so.

more on the build tomorrow night if I get time

With a 61 up front it will go like a rocket, a very brave man.

I know It's been a week but I finally have  a couple of pictures of the progress so far 

 
Doesn't seem like much progress I know but the fits are good needed quite a lot of feteling to make them all fit nicely

Nice to see you have built a left and right hand side. Many have not and made the mistake of building two sides the same. 

Keep up the good work mike.

Hi guy's,

I know it's been a while since my last update but things have been a little busy here at the Snr mansion.

Finally got to spend some time in the workshop over the last couple of nights getting the wings, which are now one with blended joint to fit the fuse properly, to say it has been a pain, well you builders will know what I mean still done now. Just got to shape the fuse top then, it will be time to test fit the engine (which still has to be run in  🙄 ) then cover everything and final assembly and set up then it will be about ready to go.

OK photo's so far
