That's looking smart, I can remember building with tissue and dope it always amazed me how taught it was and quite tuff when doped considering how fragile it starts.

So after a long delay, mainly due to a wing servo stripping its gears and then having to be cut out🤬, the Fury is finally finished. Simple Humbrol spray acrylic to give it the silver paint job. I have been waiting for what seems like weeks for a sunny calm day for the test flight - which was this afternoon. So egg’d on by the judging panel off she went with a nice hand launch from Mr Cuff (junior). Just one click of down trim and I had her cruising around beautifully. Well pleased! Apart from the nose over on landing!
Don’t let anyone tell you building small aeroplanes is any quicker🙂

Very nice! Sorry I couldn't be there for some in-flight shots, hopefully some time. I did warn you about the nose-over landings! ;)
