    Your Yak turned out great so I'm sure you can do a good job on the Dalton as well. This plane was in really good shape to begin with. Only major repair was the rudder. Counter balance was barely hanging on and TE of it was in rough shape. Other than that it was a little bit of filler here and there and wicking some thin CA into a couple loose joints.

    Next task now is the cowl and canopy. Trying to get the canopy separated from the hatch so I can recover the hatch but its fighting me so I may just screw it back down and glass and paint the hatch.

    The key is taking your time. The stick should be fairly easy as it has lots of straight lines.

    Got the blind nuts and bolts installed in the cowl as well as getting the engine and some servos installed. Will get my buddy to order some button head 4-40 screws for the cowl so it's a bit cleaner looking on the final install. Time to sand and tape off for paint.
