Fantastic model George. An amazing amount of structure for the the weight.

I do hope the full size had cable cross bracing reinforcing the booms in the horizontal plane and you intend to do the same on the model. Without bracing the boom, wing and tailplane are a four bar linkage just waiting to distort (break?) on the first slewed landing.

Well done
