Default Can't believe I forgot to share these

Here are some pictures of my project. I actually flew it for the first time four years ago and thought I posted the pictures already, but after looking through the thread I guess I didn't.

Default Thanks Ron

I don't know if your meant to ask how a lady looked before a makeover Paul.
Ah, a gentleman! Well done you and Dave - what a beautiful aircraft. Do drop in to Serpentine some time so we can admire her!
