Thanks Fr4nk1yn! Been quite a project. Here's the all important in flight pics. I was disappointed with the overcast skies and the lack of contrast on her first 'All painted up' flight. I'll try and get some sunnier pics and maybe a video. The speed of this large jet is impressive! Much more aerodynamic than my F-15 of approx. the same size. Although the F-15 weighs almost 3/4lb more. I stood the Arrow on her tail and she went straight up until I pushed the nose over!! Happy building/flying.

Was able to get a windless afternoon last Sun. & get a few 'Blue Sky' pics. The sun was very low in the sky and made for some nice shots. A special thanks to my Bro-in-law for manning the camera. Blue skies!!

I was able to find some pics of the full scale non-flying replica constructed a few years back of RL 203. This is the plane I tried to emulate.
