Hey yal this is my first build it is a great planes p51d mustang 3 days in, I got one wing almost complete retract working good just starting to shape it.

The other wing needs some ajustment on retract before i sart to sheet it.

Fusalage 80% needs more sheeting and shaping, it is going to be an electric so alot of electronics can be done after.

If anyone has any tips or maybe some important things that need to be done at this stage please let me know.

Here are some progress pics let me know what you think.

Re: My First Build

The fuselage may be a bit heavy? Maybe you can drill a couple lightening holes in the
tail feathers if they are solid 1/4 sheet? Also, you could probably save a bit with lighter
wheels...(foam or featherlite) as they are called.
