Nice! And I just realized I have one of those -- built. A friend gave it to me a few years back. He was getting out of hobby. It's body (fuselage) had been snapped in two, but easy to repair. I'll need to paint and give it a try. Weight is the bane of gliders, did you use any balsa filler. Yours looks pretty smooth. I was considering one coat on the glider, the booster could obviously have more.

I like the watercolors. Heck, some gliders just get scribbled on with colored markers.
