MOC: Technic Spitfire WIP Part 6

Well after another month I finally have another update to this build. (Which is taking way longer than I planned.) I've gotten quite a bit of progress done since last time but there's still a bit more to do.

First up I've done quite a bit of the tail section since last time. I've added the tail fin as well as the rudder control surface although the elevators are proving to be a bit tricky. The current way I have to control them isn't really working at all so I need to come up with a better way to do that. If anyone has any ideas feel free to suggest them.

Looking a bit more like it should now isn't it?
The wings have also been worked on and are now pretty much at there full wingspan which at the moment is about 89cm or about 35 inches. The ailerons have also been added and they actually work quite well.

The entire left or right wing depending on which way you look at it.
Both of the mechanisms for the landing gear and ailerons.
I've also built and added the propeller which I think turned out pretty good if I do say so myself.

Also looks quite good when spinning but you'll have to wait for the video to see that.
Finally a view of the overall progress I've made. Really starting to look like a Spitfire now isn't it? One last thing is that I've also put in the M motor for the landing gear just in front of the IR receiver. Forgot to take a close up picture of that.
