Progress...tail feathers, center section of wing, and right wing...it’s drying, so, then the left wing is next. I will give a small amount of ‘unscale’ dihedral to each side....

I used to fly an old can motor and nicad powered pusher glider that was a lot of fun to just float around the sky.  It would even perform a loop if I got bored flying circles and lazy 8's.  Just a relaxing aircraft!
