Thanks for the kind words Bruce! Just back from a week in scenic Williamsburg.
It is true that I'm thinking of a kit run, but I'm a little nervous about it, as I've never done anything like it before, and wouldn't want to disappoint my fellow modelers. Bruce is the only other person to really see the kit, and no one has built one but myself. Went together pretty well for me, but I knew what I was thinking...
I used the crutch method found in Jim Ryan's kits, as it seems to work out splendidly for him.
The wing is foam with 1/32 balsa sheeting. The airfoil is actually E205. I wanted something that seemd likely to work to me!
Everything else is balsa/ply.
s400 twin, 312 sq in. Mine was 39 oz with 10 cells, obviously lighter on 6v and 8 cells (thinking of doing one this way this winter)
I'd like to get a few kits together over the next few weeks, but I can't make too many early promises as I'm working around 70-80 hours a week right now.
I'll let you guys know when things are a little closer to reality.
By the way, Bruce's canopy is REALLY incresible!
