Flying Wing Update

I have finally been able to get back to the 1951 Flying Wing. I’ve had a few people comment on the tail, the lack of need for it, and the size. I’m not changing a thing because this is how it was designed, built, and flown back then. One thing is certain, this will be a very stable ship with all that dihedral, 4 degrees of washout in the wing tips and that huge tail. I have seen this bird fly and it’s exactly that.

Another few hours and I should have it done. I have some basic sheeting to do still for the engine pod and belly. I’m getting all the gear in first and then I’ll finalize everything for covering. Nice built, nice kit. I give it 5 stars so far.
