It is!...a 1970 plan...and smaller than Walt drew it...it's really a 8" span...so things are being shaved and sanded...the sheeting is sanded to .021....the fuse and tail feathers started out at 1/32...but I use my razor plan to shave them thinner...

Marc, great choice. You ought to try with cheap dollar store gold tissue cut with a double edge razor dope it right on the side! Nice and sharp it will pop that blue tissue!
I am using it right now on my Reliant and I am excited about how cool it looks

Thanks fellows....I did stiffen the fuse with some very thin sticks...added a few milligrams and gave it great strength....the article commented in flying her, that the wing needs turbulence strips....there no glide....so she may not be a flyer, but I will try.
May have to build the pnut version, with regular rib/wing stuff....so there's turbulators.

I do like the blue.....it only took about 6" off my blue roll Grin
