Way to go!!!!! What a beauty, Never flown this type before, but looks like it would be a blast. You did a beautiful job on it. Have you had your certification flight yet? Really good looking work, I can’t even see the control line hook ups on the wing. LOL

How did you cut the wood for the windows so thin you can see through them and yet remain strong enough not to shatter? Wink Wink ;2D
At first I had to check and see if this was another of pashley's projects.
Seriously, this seems like it must have been a life changing experience in terms of time, dedication, and painstaking attention to detail. You MUST share more…
