Heyoood,

You're one fast builder!!  Great job!  The model is gorgeous!  Not a trace of wrinkle on the tissue covering anywhere.

I have the wings laid up - just need to do the infill on them before I start on the struts for all (floats and wings)

I've heard of both and have the plans for the Telasco but I don't have the Berkeley F-11F Tiger.  I'll look forward to following theses builds.
