Default Patriot 40 conversion

I picked up a Patriot 40 kit at a auction this past summer for a price I couldn't pass up, and I thought the plane looked cool. This will be my winter build project converted to electric of course.

I started on this during the week and have the tail feathers built, and almost ready for sanding. Have to admit the balsa in this kit is real nice which will help a lot. Lot of shaping and sanding to do, and the soft balsa will be a treat to work with. It doesn't look like I will have to replace any balsa like I did with Sig kit last year.
