Renovation / tuning:

When I picked up the plane it was quite dirty and filthy however otherwise
in ok condition.

A closer look revealed that both elevator wings were slightly cracked and
would needed a new cover. So it was with the rudder. The long wings
however looked as if they never had a serious damage. The foil over the
ribs was loose and dirty and in two places broken. Decision was easy to
recover all wings and elevator wings with Oracover. Possible I will give
this plane then also ailerons - however originally it had none!

The fuselage was painted in white and red - but a really poor job was
made - so that would be the biggest issue to remove this paint and
respray the the Feran fuselage.
