Thanks @AIRFORGE! I can’t remember if I did 3 or 4. It’s just for looks. Did you fly yours yet?
Only successful low throttle glide tests, so far. Has been wet, and now it's way too windy here. We have a freeze headed our way tomorrow that's going to last into midweek. Hope to try to fly after that.
I built two and I'll be making two more for a friend. I've made a few changes...mostly marks/tabs/slots for alignment, mounted the aileron servos inside the fuse under the hatch in holes in the wing, changed the nose a bit, added magnets to the hatch.

When you assemble the tail, it has a channel in the center for the wires. It exits into the fuse. You'll probably need to add an extension to them to reach the esc.
The black parts are the window templates for the sides of the fuse. Just add a piece between them for the front part of the window.

I put the rudder servo in the left side of the nacelle, and the elevator servo in the right side of the nacelle, different from the picture.
But, jpots pic shows the easiest way.
I modified and closed the nose (see attachments in post #72), but that's entirely up to you.
