For the first one with the slender tail I would recommend the rear motor anchor just behind the cockpit or there abouts.  At 200% what will the wing span be?  I know Peanut is 13" span so will you continue in the Peanut scale?  Whatever you build they all look very interesting!

sorry for the early send.

1.  September Fate.  AKA Hot Stuff racer.  I got 3D renderings from the builder.
2. IMP.  I would kit bash the grey ghost for  construction detail.
3. BooRay. peanut blown up 200%.

All planes are blown up 200% approx.   September Fate if sooooo slender and sexy it would be a challenge.

So I did get into work today (the office) and made enlargements/plans for all of these !! 

Thoughts?  Suggestions?

So now I'm thinking about my next build.

I realize I was spoiled by having a nice printer at work that could tile and enlarge for me.  So it's taken a bit of time to access the printer since I'm 'working from home'.   I lucky that I'm the one person that can enter my building Smiley

so,  I have these planes to chose from.

Great job Brad...your Hyperbipe looks fantastic!  Looks like you and your wifey were able to have a great time getting out of the house!  Good looking couple! Smiley

I'm calling the HyperBipe done!!  Here are some final shots.  I did a couple of test glides and she will definitely need nose weight.  Current final weight is ~25 grams. 

And a bonus shot of my wife, Sue, and I on an adverture/hike yesterday at Kalama Horse Camp by Mount Saint Helens followed by a picnic at Lake Merwin, Washington.

While "working for home" I did some building "from home"  Ha.  I brought the plane up to my office and attached the lower fin and tail wheel assembly.  Next up is the attaching the wheel pants.

I'm getting down to the final steps.  I attached the upper wings and covered the spinner yesterday.  I'll attach the lower fin and tail wheel next, then the wheel pants.

Thanks Tom.  I also found that a Gel Silver Pen my son gave me matches perfectly and is super easy. My first plan is to try to cut tissue to create the spinal..... we see.. Ha.

This is really turning out to be a beautiful model.  Spinner looks great.  As for the spiral on the spinner.  Once the tissue has been added and sealed you might use Testor's Silver enamel for that spiral.  It's bright silver and a fine "0" or "00" brush will allow a nice thin line as you apply the spiral.

Thanks Tom.  I wasn't sure about the Blue but I think it looks pretty good.

I'm prepped to attach the upper wings today - fingers crossed.  I also turned the spinner.  I'll cover it with black tissue and then figure out how to do the silver spiral on it Smiley

Definitely have pushed the Hyperbipe up the to do list!  This is a beautiful model!  Love the blue tint of the windows and windscreen!

I got to work this afternoon with the windows/wind shield, mounted the tail fin and prepped the spinner block.

Thanks Mike!

I got the tail wheel sorted last night.  I'll attach it last since it does seems very sturdy Smiley

I've been working my windshield and side window templates and have them ready.  I just cut the side windows which I will attach to the interior of the fuselage.  I'm going with a Blue PVC which I think will look nice. 

Next week is supposed to be a heat wave the Pacific Northwest and I'm hoping to get this plane done while sheltering inside from the heat.

I think it will look great from 8 feet way but not so good up close

I think it looks good up close as well as far away, trim is nice and crisp and the covering looks good as well. Had to remind myself this is a peanut. Well done.
