When I made the Eratix, I duplicated the main component to make the internals. The first thing I did was to set the internal to 99% size. Then I looked over the entire object and moved faces and vertices of the internal structure just to the inside of the external structure, where needed.

I too duplicated the wing. Then I hid the skin and made the internals. Then I un-hid the skin and enlarged. "Six of one half dozen of the other"

You mean, "There's more than one way to skin a cat."

@Norton I applied the "Kaos" decal on the tail, but the red was blending in too well with the plane so I changed it to green. Cool?

I figured the red would be a issue, green looks great!

Some of the cool things I have seen on this plane are the working servo horns and control rods and control horns, and I just noticed the carb throttle arm works and the carb barrel rotates. Whoa.

I crashed hard and saw the servo wires had ripped leaving exposed ends.

Lots of cool details on this plane like the balsa texture, serrated needle valve, servo wires, linkages, steering gear and spring, wheels are cool, switch on the side of the fuselage, etc. It's a pretty neat model!
