West Wings Merlin, completed at last!

Back in October I started constructing a West Wings Merlin glider, however, I got distracted and never got around to finally completing this kit.  I refrained from any fancy paint job as I wanted to keep as light and clean looking as possible, sometimes less is more.

Over the Christmas holidays I managed to find a spare couple of hours to make a new tail (since the last one warped during the final doping) and to finally glue in the wing and tail-plane dowels.

I am rather pleased with the final result.  I just need to balance and trim the glider and give it a go once Spring arrives and the winter storms are behind us.
