When cleaning up after this build, I found two sheets of stickers.  Immediately applied them.

Photo  29 - the "this way forward, stupid" arrow on the wing
Photo  30 - the "this way up, stupid" arrow on the tail. The book in the background (right) is for Andy's background analysis of all posted photos.  Yes, you can borrow the book. :D
Photo  31 - the fuse stickers.

@Frank v B I am SO flattered that you chose to feature my first initial so prominently on the tail of your Bearcat (photo 3530).

Thanks for the book reference @Frank v B.  My kids were traumatized right from birth.  They found out that they had my DNA, and there was nothing they could do about it! The book is yours @GuyOReilly !! 8)

Took some quick photos of the stickered airplane.

Looks good.  Passes the 50/50 rule in spades.

Truly beautiful @Frank v B !  Anticipated maiden flight?  Portraits (I can provide some more expansive backdrop paper!) ?

Thank you Guy and Andy.

Anticipated maiden flight?  Yes.  It will fly, however short the flight may be. 
When?  When can't you make it to Rogo Field?   ;) ;)
