First, I must say, I am very impressed with this group. I have found answers to questions that I hadn't thought to ask, and people have been willing to answer the questions that I have asked. I would like to specifically thank Norgale and Tollytime, the information given has been helpful to say the least. I am considering making this a three screw also scale prop location and shaft angle I purchased this kit because of the opportunity that arose, however, I was not quite ready to build this model yet. So I'm aware,and willing to sustain much prodding from the membership.. Right now I'm gathering valuable information and making some great plans for this kit. So don't lose hope friends I will get to it soon.

I am the new kid (70) on the block.I built this same kit in 1961.I have not built anything since.There will be some elementary questions along the way to get up to speed.(HUMOR THE OLD GUY) I built that kit w / AMBROID glue. (1)Anyone have a problem w/that choice again? (2) Since this kit seems to be in some demand,does any one see the need to make tracings etc.of wood parts? I am going to make copies of all paper. Will listen to all who have a birthday between 1961 & 2000. THANKS FOR THE WELCOME and ANY ADVICE
