Nice choice.

Are you going to be doing the transparent fuselage option?

Nah, not this go anyways.  If I did the clear fuselage I'd be wanting to add further details, which would be counter-productive to a blitz build.  I'll save the parts for the future though If I get a wild hair.

Final push with a bit over 2 hours to go.  Just need to assemble the gear and finalize the pitots.

Very nice looking result.

 

The airframe always reminds me of Dan Dare's space rocket - I think it's the glazing.
