Weathering won't be a problem I suppose, just fly it in the rain for a bit ; )

Thanks lads, hope to fly it towards the end of summer. work has stopped on it for a while as i am working on a 1/3 scale Supercub for a guy and at 9 ft long and some 13 ft wingspan it takes up most of workshop. Handy little jobs like this help fund the hobby so its well worth the delay and interesting at the same time, will post a few pics of it later. :thumbsu:

There's that guy in Australia I believe that fly's in 80% scale Spit model. Recently was in the news for surviving landing without the wheels that did not come out.

messing about with rigging wires every time its assembled.
