"Here's a slightly different example of Bruce Tharpe's Venture 60, powered by a Saito 91 4-stroke.  The cowl is glass tape over a foam mold and saturated with epoxy, the canopy was smoked with dye and shortened by a couple of inches to make the nose look longer and due to the extra weight of the engine the rudder and elevator servos are mounted back aft to balance things out.  The model weighs in just over spec's at 7.45 lbs.  Soon as the snow melts we'll get airborne."
