I know I've got a shedload of builds on the go and I know I should maybe finish some before starting anything else. Couldn't resist this one, though...

Hummingbird Fly Baby. 26" span and destined for GM120 CO2. I may lose a few points for the printed tissue, but I don't care. Lovely kit of a lovely subject. Hoping to get it finished before the Nov.16th Alfreton indoor sesh.

Looks really good Dan, I'll be watching this one with interest. The printed tissue gives a very nice finish

Fuselage "box" together. The laser cut longerons and spacers make 2 identical sides dead easy. Next step is plotting a motor mount/cowl break former before sheeting the nose and stringering the turtledeck.

Getting there! Just a few bits to tidy up before cracking on with the tissue.

I'll not be using those Williams wheels, though. They weigh more than my left leg!
