I think he added stringers to the sides of the fuse and wing struts.
Any thoughts on this project, has anyone seen this done before.
Quick question: I havnt been to a hobby shop for years. Is $110 american really the going price for kadet Senior Kit??
its a bloody shame! that with all the bARF's out now, its cheaper ta buy an arf then build a plane! there's just not enough demand on actual kits ta keep the cost down!
the new def. of a kit is something you hafta glue the wings on and add servo's too!
I'mma builder from way back also, but I too have succumb ta the arf thing with my EDF's
depending on how extream ya wanna go! its pretty simple ta turn a kadet inta a tail dragger, and cover it yellow, but if ya wanna go and round off the wingtips and tail surfaces, its a lil more involved!
I think it would be a fun project! grab that kit and get building
