To their credit they do try to have some build'ish articles, but they are usually pretty basic planes. I guess it's tough to balance between the entry folk and those who are more experienced, but still in the park genre.
Maybe because, if they get into building, they would tend to move to a full membership and get Model Aviation magazine which has a lot more on building.

But, putting simple build articles in Park Pilot is a very good thing, as it should encourage some people to try it.
