Default $75 build contest- micro Slowpoke

Hello, some might have seen on various forums. After working on various other projects and selling them. One person asked if I could replicate a micro Slowpoke. I have done it 3 times over now. Maybe I would share some. Built solely from foamboard. It's 60% to original plans, about 25 pieces and very cheap to power.

I used original plans to get the feel of what it should look like, studied YouTube videos of nitro versions for flight characteristics. I've never seen one in person. Been in this hobby for 3 years, so that should explain it.

Anyway, let me put up a few pictures... I nevertheless plans for this and I must apologize. I have been refining the patterns I made with each build. It's gotta be right!!

So I decided to cut the flat fuselage sides. Add the turtledeck seperately. The "spines" add a structural aspect
