Nice Job Eduardo, and thanks for modelling one from 'Downunder'.  My only comment on Camels  (free flight or radio) is that they need the COG well forward or they are uncontrollable at any size.  However much lead it needs,  let it have it!  There is one video on the internet of a large scale Camel like yours that was tail heavy and it was a disaster.

Cheers, Mike
