It was 141.50. It's like I'm standing back in that shop again staring up at the top shelf. Seeing your photo of the box has brought it all flooding back!

By the way I'm a big fan of trailing edge brakes. I have a PT Vega too and fitted simple TE brakes as detailed on the plan. They stopped the plane dead, like an anchor had been thrown overboard, and then it just parachuted slowly downwards. I'd like to build another Vega someday, maybe @1/3 scale. Actually I'd like to build lots of things someday, but the Vega is definitely in the top 250.
