Could not get to the stage of getting it all glued up.

Managed to get the transparencies glued in and the tail surfaces hinged and attached to each other, Here is the state at the moment, I also carved a prop The prop need a little more shaping.

Everything pictured weighs 14.5g I'm looking at 16g Finished weight, which is not too bad.   

Wont have much time to build during the week so but will try and get something done.

Wild little beast - it looks functional and strange at the same time. It should fly well if you can get that drive train working.

There is a plan on outerzone.co.uk for a CO2 pusher version.  The tailplane is the wrong shape and some of the proportions are not quite right on that plan.

That version has a neat looking nose Dave. It's quite a cute looking aircraft.

Glued it all up and attached the structural struts.

Its essentially flight ready now, need to do the non functional struts, dummy engine and tip floats.

15.3g at the moment.

Built the tip floats, carved foam with tissue covering 0.2g apiece.

I'll try to thin the walls of the floats a little more.
