Thanks. I've flown it quite a bit after reducing the engine size 10% and it looks good to me now, just a bit smaller than the diameter of the fuselage. You couldn't tell it was too large in the air but when I taxied it up to me it just looked to large. I want to fly what I release so I had to make it smaller for me

Since I have all week I thought I'd add panel lines to add a bit of detail. I don't plan on rivets but panel lines definitely improve the look of the plane. I still have a little work to do on the wings but I think the hstab and vstab are finished. I haven't started on the fuselage yet so there's a fair bit of work to do to finish it up.

Very nice detail. You just wanna drive the frame rates for us people with cheap PC's down don't you ? (I'm really getting 150fps plus so keep going)

I didn't have enough panels going down the back of the fuselage so I added more sections today to fill that area out, it's the area from the back of the cockpit to the leading edge of the vstab. I also added a section to the vstab and finished a bit of detail work I didn't do before. It's hard to see in the picture but it did fill the plane out nicely.

ha.. Yeah, that was it !

Question. I'm wondering if I added too many lines between the back of the cockpit and the vstab ??? Maybe just add one in-between instead of so many?
