    Love those little clips, so handy. Now that a sexy engine. Things are getting exciting.

    Been a few weeks but finally managed to get the right wing to the same stage as the left. Here they are shown together, all 80 inches of wing, they can be split for transport.

    Next the fin and rudder…..

    Here shown next to the cowl. It could fit in with no need to cut the cowl but I will have to to allow for cooling.

    Looks like that beast has some power. Cowling looks really big, or is that the picture.

    More progress, fuselage sides joined. Note servo mounting tray and temporary former to ensure the firewall is square which was included in the kit, a nice touch.
