I know a Monster Stick probably isn't that interesting but it takes the same amount of work as the rest. I just finished rescaling it to a 144 inch wingspan and moved the hstab back to the end of the fuselage like the build thread shows. Then I moved the whole tail section forward so it aligns with the top view I created using the picture of the plane. I'm not sure what's next there's a few little things I could do or I could put the engine on. I may take this build off-line and just release it when it's finished there's nothing that interesting about following a Stick build.

Since it looks like there's some interest in this plane I'll go ahead and update. One of the tweaks I needed to do before I mapped the plane is go back and rework the ailerons so they're made like the ones on this plane. I started out with an old stik build of mine so the ailerons were made the way I do them (rounded leading edge) but this plane's ailerons have an Angled Edge leading edge so I went back and modified the ailerons to be like they should be for this plane. Got a question. What is good about this type of aileron instead of having them angled on both sides or rounded like you see on most planes?

Got another question. How much dihedral? I've seen it built with and without.

Me too. On take off most of the time I rolled it over and did a circle around the field inverted. Yeah I'm a show off. Oh.. I had to go back and rework the leading edge of the elevator and rudder too. All of mine was rounded but the kit has them flat. The rudder is flat on both sides. (Triangle I guess)

Per plan the Monster Stick has 8.0 inch wheels on the front and 3.0 inch wheels at the tail. They look pretty big but that's the way the real plane looks. I don't have any pictures yet but I'll post some later.

I just started making the wheels for the Monster Stick. I haven't cut the holes yet or added the valve stems but it's time to to eat so I had to stop.

Here's the finished the wheel but I haven't added the valve stem yet. I'll adjust the blackness of the tire once I get it in RF so it's not completely blacked out.

Great looking wheels, taxiing should not be a problem.

I added the valve stem so the wheels are finished. They're not mapped so the colors are off. In the end the valve stem and cap will be different colors.

I added the fuel tank access panel today and recessed the cutout around it. If it doesn't cause any shading once I map the plane I'll leave it. But sometimes there's a bit of shading I can't get out and I don't want that to show up, so we'll see what happens. I'm going to stop adding stuff and map it so I can get it flying. Ha that's the most important thing to me, getting it flying so I can have some fun with it. The first version will have my Desert Aircraft Twin because I want it to match their prototype. I'm also going to use the color scheme from their prototype, it's simple but for some reason I like it.
