Thanks. Although I don't consider myself a master, caring about my work is priority. I have learned how to glass and do polyspan along the way. Bought the video tutorial for the span, and a utube search revealed the glassing. I made a mess with the glass on my cowl at first but determination paid off and lots of sanding taught me a lesson. This is my first open frame kit build.
Many thanks for the compliment.

BTW, are the tail wires basically for scale appearance or will they actually serve a purpose on a plane this size? I considered leaving them off because I didn't install any hardwood to mount the rigging to?
Appreciate the help
