I like how you added the additional strength to the Vertical Stabilizer.


Nice work.

That's a good looking model gentlemen, both the build and the artwork of the repaint!

I think this scheme of a worn out natural metal finish so far is the best I have seen when it comes to printing the pages at home.

Gary and I will also collaborate on other projects soon with similar suitable finish.


So until someone adds silver, metallic ink cartridges to our printers, these will be the way to go for us.


Thanks

Isaac

Exclamation Wing

The wing comes in two segments ( inner and outer ).

I decided to separate the ailerons

Nice. The wings look great Isaac. I do like the separate ailerons.

Exclamation Wings structure

The original model only had two card stock spars which in my opinion is insufficient.


I added gussets, card material on top and bottom and also added a small wood dowel thru the fuselage ( not shown ) to support the landing gear struts.

Nice job on the wings. Now she is starting to look like an aircraft.
