I become curious about the stabilizer floats arrangement on this one.  :o

The parts combo works excellent, though! :thumbsup: Could use a bit of PSR, though?

Already started. And the floats will be... different.

Bit of PSR & it's a natural fit! :thumbsup:

The Farley Aircraft Bureau was well known for its attractive beautiful interesting paint schemes. Unfortunately my camera fails to capture the splendour of the mustard yellow, rendering more like dandelion.

Now it's much better. A very interesting concept. The lower slots are for a wet wing?

Looking good! 

I had a friend in college who had bought, for a song from a company upgrading their corporate fleet, a Plymouth Gran Fury Sport with a 383 Hemi, the largest two-door car I've ever actually seen.  The car had a gloss balck roof down to the window line - from their down it was mustard yellow.  Ugliest car paint scheme I've ever seen. 

Anyway, all that was to say - when you say "mustard yellow" - I get it.  :)  Been there, used the eye-bleach.  :D
I try to learn from the mistakes of others who take my advice.

Gorgeous.  How about a green pinstripe between the red and yellow?

Lower wings are on. It looks like it has an anhedral, but they are level. Optical illusion.

This is awesome!  ;D    Definitely gives me that "annoying dragonfly that keeps bothering me while I grill burgers outside" vibe. Flutterbug, for sure!!  :mellow:

YES! To me too, the first photo reminds of a dragonfly!
Impressive build and very quick too.  :thumbsup:
