It looks slightly different, but not much! The fuselage is complete and prepped for glass/paint, and the wiring harness for wing servos has begun. Servo mounts are in place. I just haven't been motivated to work on it recently.

I can understand that. Most of my projects would take just a few weekends if done by somebody else... just about, ANYBODY else! But me they take many months. Many many months.
