I can't take credit for it... this was the fine craftsmanship of wingnut, here on RCC. He had added a former around the origianl firewall to give the round shape and then added sub formers and 1/2 balsa to extend back in a taper from the firewall to about mid point on the wing. This gives the illussion you ar talking about.

Had an Enya R120 FS in it and man did she loop real pretty.. nice drawn out big loops. Hammerheads,,, pretty good but wouldn't stall for beans. The night I put it in I was trying to do spins and had her slowed right down with a tonne of back stick and all she did was mush around waggelling her wings but I finally had to force her into the spin.

The spin is not what killed her by the way.. ploughed in almost flat after pulling UP elevator 1/2 way through a roll instead of pushing down!!

I'll miss her!

Here are a couple of scratch built 4*40s. I built the yellow one with sheeted foam wings.
