Awesome!

 

As long (or more rarely short) as things take its ALWAYS a great feeling to bring one home across the finish line.

Great job! It really looks terrific.

Yep, that's great. Good to see it finally finished.

 

I had missed the fact you used a two part canopy.... I'll see if I have a newer single piece canopy you can have - I must have a blown canopy spare....?

Thanks for the nice words chaps - you're all too kind!

That'd be great if you could swing it Matt! It's off this morning for its contest debut (the biggest one of the year too), but for this and other reasons it's not a real contender. There are probably 3 other local comps I can take it too though, so I'd love to fix the most glaring issue.

 

Did you ever dig out that 262B canopy?

I must thank Tim Valdez, Steve Messer (Wumm) and Matt Low for their invaluable and generous help, advice and parts on this build, without which it would have been an entirely different affair. Thanks guys!

 

I should really have included Jerry Rutman in this list too! Thanks Jerry!

Great, Kevin. Just great. I didn't comment very much, but I kept tabs on your build. Love the way this turned out.

 

Sincerely,

Mark

Thanks Mark, always appreciate your support. Here's a dodgy photo of it on the contest table, taken with my iPhone:

After setting it down and doing a lap of the venue, I was quite surprised to find a D-9 done as 'Red 1' sitting next to it! They looked quite good together, though I feel the other model was probably the better one (the builder used a noticeably different shade of red for the undersides, and possibly even bothered to research it!).

There were some amazing models on display (I'll get photos on Monday), not least of which was a Wingnut Wings FE.2 that had come all the way from Poland! It was spectacular, and an instant category winner.
