It's been awhile since I built a Bostonian

A couple of years ago when I was experimenting with foam models I built a foam Bostonian that flew quite well, its worn down now after a couple of collisions.

I decided to build another foam Bostonian, I resurrected one of my old plans.

looking good so far, 12g at this stage.

All parts have been built, just assembled it to see what it looks like, I quite like it
Everything has been taken apart and is being masked for painting.

Its not Depron but similar.

The wing is a 5mm sanded to an airfoil shape
the tail is 2mm
The fuselage is made by splinting a 5mm thick piece so that you only have one shiny side and putting the shiny side on the outside
its 15g at this stage.
