Still take the traditional FT wing. May use the master style for next make.
The cold weather at Southern Hemisphere makes the hot gluing very rough. Hope the paint will cover all these ugly joint.

Heavy rained on Saturday night, so the fly ground is very muddy. But can't wait another week to see it flies. You can see the tail not skinded yet.
First attempt failed because of tail heavy issue. My black formbaod is 20% heavier than DTFB at least. Wingtips damaged a bit.

Put a bit weight at nose then it flies great.

Compare to Ki 61 at similar scale. The Raiden is really a big fighter plane.
Going to do more details and use below paint scheme.
