Thought i'd show you my Tailwind build..
I'd already started before finding this Forum, so the Fuse sides were already 90% complete... but atleast I found you, and started taking pics, before
I crashed it...
I'm trying to do 3 things at once at the mo, this is on a Timeshare with other projects, so don't expect flying pics just yet...
I'm spending most of my time on my Heli scale rebuild -

A Bit of time fixing the wings on my E-flite Extra 260 480, after I got too close to a magnetic tree
I've resized the plans down to 66% 32" as its more manageable, and I have servo's n motors for that size already kickin about..
First issue I had, and I say this with NO reflection on the plans, just my novice-ness, was the top fuse spar. I wasn't sure what I was supposed to do,
but figured it out in the end, even if it was in my own way..
I miss-read the plan again here, at the tail, not noticing that what I thought was a peice of wood, was infact the tail plane hole... Doh..!!
Altho, it worked out ok, cuz i made the triangular infill a snug fit before cutting this 'extra' bit back out
Apart from those two minor screw-ups, the rest has gone fine...
Heres the two fuse sides, and tail parts finished, apart from a couple of gussets...
With a lighter, for scale...
The tail fin, with my artistic lisence on strengthening with a few strips of hard wood in the mix

Definitely Learn to post pictures innthe thread. Chasing a linnk for each picture takes too long.
It would slow production down on my next design.
