Well it's starting to look like a plane now Peter. Keep up the good work. I will get back to mine in a couple of weeks time.

I just managed to find a bit of spare time to do a little bit more on this one. I have got some of the plastic body sections on the front and the rear wing is almost finished just the covering of the aileron's to go

Fantastic! I can just about smell the balsa :-)


If they were not so very expensive here in SA I would have got one long ago.


Nice work.


Just as a matter of interest, to substetute dope , you could also use celulose based sanding sealer, it works great and doesnt make the tissue "soft"
