    thanks milenio3!

    the spinner was a bit tricky. i also put on the bottom antenae,added a couple more and the sensers. i call them sensers because i dont know the actual function of them.

    What a great looking little kit this is... you and Claudio have both outdone yourselves here on both the design and your build of it, hats off to both of you.

    I like very much the look of this airplane. The design and the build are both very well done.
