Though I might disagree on the colours...hah hah. It is a fine build. The struts look better than the kit items out of the box. Can you give us a how to on some of the finer points...This that you corrected or fine tuned?

Agreed, and agreed! Very nice work, the stripes are clean and well done.

No, the struts are OOB I had to sand the upper part of the lower wing to give it some dihedral, but other than that the upper wing went on failrly easily. To do the stripes I scanned the plans, blew them up to match the wing, extended the lines and then laid the white wing over this to mask with 5mm strip of 3m blue tape. Only had one spot that I had to "redo".

Dihedral? In the top wing half?
