Working on putting the tail on the fuse now. Wings are pretty much done. Just need to drill and install screws in the outer wing panel spar tubes. I'm going to install wood dowels into the tubes to give the screws something solid to screw into. Since I have a small SUV, 2004 Ford Explorer, and only have large aircraft .60 size and up, (5) this one will be broken down every trip. (I know, I need a trailer!)

I'm finding the instructions are very basic, and the kit has been finalized long after the original instructions were printed. The control linkages are totally different than the instructions show, and items are not finished the way shown. There are also some extra ABS trim parts not covered in the instructions. An experienced modeler should have no trouble building this model, as the instructions do give the basics necessary, but not much more.

Well, have to take the wife to work, (bad weather,) will post more later.
