Werner, any reason you've gone for the short wings? I've got a CMK conversion for mine with those stub wings and I was going to extend them the same as you did to fit the 4P plans.

yes... I modified them to long version, fitted them, glued them and checked again with the 4+ plans ...

they were exactly my extension too long :( so I de-modified them again - superglue and a lot of it so hard razor saw work ;) sow they appear to fit the plans nicely.

I think that when I first modified them, perspective fooled me!

but that is quite some time ago... I am happy with the current look can't explain my former motivation now!

will try to make a photo showing the current fit to the 4+ plans

Hi, I know this photo,

if you look closely last time I mistook the outer missiles lauchers for the outer limit of the wing... that is wrong ~5mm on each side

here are some from this morning I took especially for you:

thanks!

incorrect in what respect? there is a pin , or more a wire antenna mount there... maybe it should be a bit further aft! what do you think?

there are actually 2 of these antenna mounts, but not on the center, but to the left and right!

Never thought I'd use the word pleasant in relation to a 'Hind' but that's the only way I can describe that scheme. Nice work.
