These kits come in a basic form. Stock motor is an option , Fan unit with kit is not worth using and gets binned.
Glass the kit using water based poly urethane (WBPU). Adds very little weight , but has multiple benefits( stiffness, resilience , good finish etc). A lot easier to do than you would think.
These are the two products I use when glassing Cabots floor water based & Dulux Eze-Kote. (there are multiple similar products on the market)

Sources of information I used to build this plane
Build thread on rcgroups.
Jepe site has some very useful info with build pictures on a range of planes
He also sells kit versions with instructions on how to build.
Google and utube
