Looking good Chris  Smiley
Reminds me of the Sig Cabinaire I built, as far as the YHWM bit goes .... the Skokie wing looks sturdier though!

Thanks Russ

 Skokie is now done  Grin. Maiden will be next weekend at Old Warden (weather permitting)

It needed some tail weight to balance on the mainspar, I think as others have said, the model is designed for a light balsa prop not the plastic one supplied in the kit. I have a blank so if it survives OW I'll do a proper balsa prop and free wheel.

The pop up wing DT looks like it will work ok and is operated with a Tomy timer.

AUW weight without rubber is 70g so no light weight wonder ( partly due to DT weight ) but hopefully a steady flyer  Undecided ...

EDIT just realised I'm ahead of myself - OW is weekend after next... and I was rushing to finish !

Looks great! Good luck with the maiden flight. What kind of motor are planning to use?

Thanks Atesus.

I've made a couple of motors a short trimming one and slightly longer one, both 4 strands of 3/16"

Chris,
        That looks really sharp. Mine balances with a balsa prop and I have flown with 4 x 1/8' but 4 x 3/16" is probably a better choice.
a really nice build.
