Default F8F Bearcat scratch build

Hi all,
I've drawn up this set of plans for quite a while now but haven't gotten the chance to start on them until now.
It's still in the real "Rough Stage" of building.. The fuselage still needs a lot of sanding and shaping to be the way it needs to. I also need to vacuum form a new canopy as it's not exactly scale.
Wingspan is 35" and the total all up weight is 6 oz. so far including the stab and elevator which you can't see in this picture. I plan to power it with a Himax 2025 motor. First time posting here as I'm usually on rcgroups. Fun stuff though.. building from your own designs.

I just strapped on a canopy of one that I had lying on the shelf. It doesn't fit well and basically... Looks like crap! I've started shaping out a plug in order to pull an new canopy from that should look much more scale.

Okay! Something that's scale and not flat. (no offense y'all)
Very nice work.
