i think the arse end is too fat, needs thinning down a touch me thinks.
but that would mean building a new fuselage and i am almost out of material. :(

could you you not take a wedge out and glue it back down Or lift the top and slice some off then replace the top .Or bottom It's only Depron isn't it .

I think the tailplane/fin are too small which gives the illusion of the large rear end. May look better with the elevator fitted but the fin definitely needs enlarging.

I must admit that I agree with Doug, Tony. I reckon it'd benefit from a larger span tailplane and a taller fin. You don't need to make either of them fatter.

Given that the model is made of Depron, it's a trainer and it's going to take some punishment, so the back end being a little deeper than it should be is a good thing. The larger empennage will also add stability, which is also a good thing for a trainer.
Too much thrust is never enough!

That fin looks a lot better, Tony, and the rear fuselage depth now looks in proportion with the rest of the model.

Well done mate! :) :)

finished sheeting the top of the fuselage now.
will leave the front open until after i have fitted the esc and u/c.
so i need to sand the edges round and i can cover the fuselage and make it ready for paint.

well today i bent up and glued home the elevator joiner, then fitted the elevators.
fitted the rudder and then glued the tailplane/ fin ensemble to the fuselage.
i also fitted the wing dowels.
need some wire for the u/c now and we can finish the fuselage off.


i have more depron coming on Tuesday ( i hope) so i should be able to construct the wing next week.
soon be finished and i can then start the next daft idea. :P :P
