thank you, Sky9 - much appreciate the encouragement!

I'm going to let all that yellow paint cure for another day or two before I add the red stripes to that chevron and the waist bands..

I love the cooking oil idea  - always have a soft spot for simple remedies.

When I was a kid...we'd take some cooking oil from Mom's kitchen and rub the backside of the plan making it transparent enough to build the other wing panel on the backside!

As my Father used to say, "Take my advice and do as you please!"  Best of luck with whatever you decide.  This is really looking good!

ok thanks Huey,

I have a place around the corner that can probably do that - or I might just trace it out onto drafting paper..it's only a handful of lines and I have a t-square here.

If my brain is working correctly, seems I went to a fella around the corner who does copy work. He has a fancy copier. He did a reverse copy. Had several copies done and taped them together. I think if you copied on standard paper and sprayed the back with clear Laquor might work???

added a strut that I had missed - it isn't on the C3B but IS supposed to be part of the Cloudboy's LG assy..

Thanks guys  - I am pushing hard on this one and hoping for a good outcome.

I have a question for you Huey.
These Flyline plans only show the left half and center section of the lower wing - and center section and right half of the upper - did you use a light box and trace the plans then flip the tracing over..? or

Great work of art, Heyoood.   Like Huey, I'll keep a watch on this build.  Glad to see you trying for some extra challenges.  We'll never know our limits until we try pushing our boundaries.  Good for you!
