It does look good. Sort of like a '30's look. I like the thin wheel pants. Hopefully the wheels will be totally free running.

Ian, they are not as free as should be, but will work.

Bob...should be able to trim her for tight circles!  I'm sure she'll be a real flyer!

Tom, it will be the blue and yellow with US insignia. I want to fly this airplane so it may not live long with the small area here.

Looks good. Are you going with the plan's single 1/8 x 1/16 wing spar? To me it looks like it should be rotated 90 degrees, so that it gives more resistance to flex, but I think that I would rather do 2 x 1/16" square spars top and bottom to replace it.

Ian, I thought about this spar and went with one as per plan, but I used some rock hard balsa and it looks good.
