Slope Commander Part-5

As I mention in Part 4 that the fuse needed spray painting and this I manage on Saturday morning early as there was just about no wind to start of with. The finish came out not to bad but in order to get it perfect it will require much more time and work.
At this stage I am more concern about the weight and I need to move on to making the flying surfaces. I manage to cut the vertical tail and cut out of newspaper the templates for the windows that I will stick on with vinyl film. This still looks to big and I will trim the final shape of them down a bit. (hope that rudder looks more streamline now, Mike)

On Sunday I could not get much done because of the Silverton leg of the HTL, but last night I was chipping away at this build again. So more on this build in part 6.
