The plane looks great! I like your colour choices and layout, good stuff. It really looks clean. Take the time to mount your flap and aileron brackets. They are good for 3 or 4 knots.

Default Rocket vs. CF-18 (large photos)

Several years ago, I contacted the RCAF to get the paint numbers for their blue/gold CF-18 airshow demonstator. I got the runaround with requests for formal licensing and gave up in frustration. Eventually, however, I designed my own colour scheme for the Rocket:

Today, I learned about the 2016 CF-18 demonstator's new livery. You think they would have approached me for a license, but nooooo!

Cool F1 Rocket N76TR

Only 15+ years to get to this point!

It's flying great. 200KTAS at 5500MSL, so I'm sure it's not the latest Rocket out there (but it looks fast).
