This is my Baby Bombshell from an old Model Builder magazine, scaled up for 1/2A Texaco, but I ended up fitting it with electric instead.

It's 42" and a great flyer, though I coulda reduced the dihedral slightly.
The power unit is a GWS-EPS350 with 2s 1200 LiPo's. Carefull flying gives 30 - 40 minutes flying time.

It's all tissue covered and the main wings and fuse was also covered in laminating film first. Total flying weight 17.5 oz.
I could have built it a lot lighter, but I initialy started building it to 17oz for 1/2A texaco and so did not bother with weight saving.
