dedStick,

Believe it of not ot was a freebee givaway at last year's swap meet here at my local club BVRC (Brazon Valley RC) Purchases at "Al's Hobbies" in Houston, TX

Everyone was looking at th wing and it's split sheeting shaking their heads. The fuse was (is still) so dried out weighted nothing and had (see pics) bad stains of the wood filler at the rear stab roots. I was excited like a kid on Christmas morning, plus I had no idea how old this Zlin Akrobat actually. Ebay had a same half built kit going for $150 and RCU for over $200. I thought it was a P-51 or spitfire, but I knew of the potiential- for what this was as soon as I saw the box.

Back to the shop and that battery hatch which is coming out real nice, built in place too!
