Nice! I've contemplated this one for a while. You did a good job keeping the wings lined up straight.

I think that wings are the most difficult part of any model!To keep them straight I create an internal structure with a piece of folded paper,this helps.
Best regards,

Really nice build.

I usually do some sort of internal structure on wings also, and will quite often double the thickness on the bottom part of the wing to insure rigidity.
