I agree with Tom. The canopy really sets it off, and I also like the way the wing fillets turned out  Smiley

Terry, I tried to remember how you applied yours on past builds and was brave enough to try with domestic tissue. To my surprise it worked, but I think it was more in the way the construction of the wing at the fuselage that allowed the tissue to be applied with less fuss than any skill on my part.

The BC-1 is now finished and given to a boy at Church along with his brothers who received an airplane. Now their dad wants to take some time for us all to go trim the a/c and enjoy flying.

Bob,

I must agree with Tom regarding the wing root fairing.  Any comments on how it was achieved?  Looks much lighter than sheet balsa, card stock or printer paper.
