You can see it’s Christmas time

13 February 2019. After a few weeks being lazy it’s back to work. Tail assembly ready for glueing paint and line work completed before assembly, it’s easier to work with note wing is detachable as per RC models.

19 April 19. Final fits and motor test running prior to test flights soon. Found one speed controller gone U/S only five motors running will have to purchase new one with some spares, it’s a big model rather a handfull to work on and move around the house.

1 May 19. First test flights model flys well but nose heavy, I knew this but I needed to check the model was OK before I proceeded to finish it, wheels need to be realigned also. All wheels replaced with lite weight foam ones and aligned, extra wieght added to rear of model, model ready for next tests but this will not be until last week in May as I am away now. Also new speed controller fitted.
