First off check out this box... SupaTim said this thing was boxed well... he wasn’t kidding. Double boxed and the inner box is super thick cardboard. Tim said he usually likes to throw stuff in the box, but with how much effort it takes to get to the inside it was easier to send another box with the goodies.

Decided to play with the gear first after looking over this super cool airframe. Put the CF Main Landing Gear on. Little dab of blue locktite, and a couple small beads of welders glue.

Decided to leave the wheels and pants off for a bit.

Tailwheel... interestingly enough it’s says Pilot RC on them.... probably sourced from the same distributor?

Took some time to wick in some strategic CA. Hardened the wood screw holes, and hit the joints that appeared to need it the most. SkyWing used a lot of glue! Not like my Timber on bit. Very pleased with most of the joints. A couple little defects, but not bad at all!!
