Building the fuse...

WOW is about the only word to describe it. I've built probably 50 balsa RC kits over my 14 year carreer and this one falls together with the best of them. I had a little time at lunch with the plane in my car so I thought I'd break it out and look at it.

The first two instructions were just gluing fuse bulk-heads together so I found the glue and did that.... well... I couldn't resist continuing through lunch and by the end I had nearly completed the entire fuse! I had just the box to work on and the pieces aligned themselves perfectly!

Doug's laser cuts the parts so well the pieces just fall out of the wood smooth and ready to build. The instructions were easy enough to follow that a first time balsa builder could very easily accomplish this so far.

If the rest of the plane goes together this easily I'll finish it (minus radio gear) this weekend and should be flying by next weekend (the goal!)
