    Wings, still undressed!

    A few more "bones" added, the last two are pair of bottom wings, then pair of top wings.

    The megaphones would be speaking tubes, known as "Gosport tubes", used for communicating between the cockpits before the electrical intercoms were introduced.

    Very good modelling work by the way! Is it going to be a flying model?

    Hi Adrian,
    It is being built as a flying model, powered by Saito 150 GK. 4 stroke.
    Hope I get more than 1 flight.
    Cheers
