Default Eros gets it undercarriage!!!

Progress this week.. undercarriage got bent to shape, jigged, and welded. So she looks a bit more like a vintage model now. Still have to fit the brackets that will hold the spats. Built the fin base as well. I have 2 Hitec HS65 MS micro servos for the rudder and elevator, which can be installed in the fin without any probs. The big spat shaped lump of balsa will be carved to the exact shape of the spats - I know a very useful composite guy who will then make a clay mould off my balsa pattern, and make me up a pair of one piece fibreglass spats. Hope to build the tailplane and top fin/rudder over the next few days...
