Hi Rog,
I know how you feel , please dont give up, my first mold was a Ventus, that My friend says resembles a Club Astir, when you look down the fuselage it was like a banana , but you learn and progress, I have never been happy with any of my planes and have this bad habit when showing off to someone on the slope who asks, you see this spot here it's 1 mm out. And theres a small blister here, dont know why I do that.
Before starting the JS1 I took a small break and decided to clear the workshop and start with a new approach.
So far everything has gone right, and I hope it continues.The mind has to want it

Bottom line is practice, plan and have an end goal in sight, but most important if you do not derive joy and fulfillment put it aside and go have a beer
More pics next.
