Yep, looks just like my Dave Platt kit, box pic and all. One thing that leapt out at me though, my kit does not have the aileron corrugations. Not sure if they went missing from the kit (before I got it - used) or if the kit did not include them back then. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Well, maybe they were a late edition. They are not mentioned in the manual or shown on the plans. Basically the plans show built up balsa ailerons. I guess the intention may be to glue these on the outside of the built up ailerons. I'll see when I get there. The plastic is fairly heavy at over 3 oz.

Now the photo on the box does show corrugated ailerons. Does your box photo show them?
