Just to prove that it does fly! The Fantome on a low level fly by. The model flies very well and is a joy to land. I line her up on the runway and reduce throttle to about half and fly her in. When over the threshold reduce throttle to about 1/4 and flare just prior to the wheels touching.

Here you can see the finish of silver Solartex and the rib tapes. A coat of clear polyurethane was applied over the finish. The finish on the forward fuselage is a mixture of Presto film and Flite Metal. More details on how to apply finish, both simulated metal and fabric can be found by looking at this page-Detail Finishing of Scale RC Airplanes.

 This photo gives you an idea of the model's size. Here you can see the rib tapes ( there are a LOT of them!) and the Monokote RAF roundels.

Plans are also available in PDF format. You can take these files and plot them at your local print shop.

I recently got a set printed at the local Staples store that had a wide (36 in.) format printer.

I found them most helpful and I explained that I needed the plans printed exactly full size and they were able to do this after a few attempts.
