No posts but:
- covered both wings and ailerons
- covered the stabilizer

They are a very bight red.  Next- have to decide the colour of the fuselage/rudder.  This will have to be spray painted because of the fibreglass.

Hey @Frank v B ,

Maybe bight yellow or bight KLM blue?  ;D

Photos of the wings and elevator halves.
A large plane.  Perspective given by the pilot.   ;D
Now I know how Ben Feist must have felt building his large glider.  This one is 8.5' span.  Ben's was 14 plus feet.

I like the flaming red colour, goes well with the Flamingo theme (Flame & Go).
Nice selfie, better than any picture from @Andy Hoffer  could ever take ;-)

I have to agree with @GuyOReilly@Frank v B 's face always gets terribly contorted whenever I approach him with my camera!  ;D
