18 yr build? 6 years ago I would have sniggered at that. In 2014 I bought a -4 project that was “almost done”. I have been working every weekend on it since. Now I get it. Nobody can really understand until they do it. Congratulations on a great built. Hope she flies as great as she looks.

The plane looks very nice and I'm sure it'll fly that way! Congratulations from another "super slow builder"!

Painted, but not quite "finished". Flying unpainted was hard on the eyes on sunny days. SL30 radio won't change freq and I have to send it in for repair ($$). It will be a few more days before I can get some in-flight pics. It was a long 6 weeks without being able to fly!
