    Thanks man! Pushing it out to youtube now, will let Chris review it for accuracy, then post it up on the first page. I keep looking at it thinking I need to spice it up somehow... Not sure what that means exactly. Maybe building in my underwear... That's Spicy.

    Please dont glass this plane, you will completely negate the whole reason we use an expensive epp mold and material. The glass wont stick well to this type of foam either

I've been leaning towards assembling the wing and making it permanently one piece and glassing it like this guy does with his fuselage. I figure 2 layers with the layers oriented 90* from each other will be plenty. I found some fiberglass cloth that weighs 2oz per square yard so if I don't slather on a ton of the epoxy, I think the weight gain won't be too extreme. Then once it is all cured I'll use a vinyl wrap for color.

    If you want to spice it up, Havard and I can put together one of our shirtless break dancing videos that we make together. You can add it to the intro.
