Probably not much of a build description George - i was doing this one a bit under the radar - I get embarrassed having about 4 unfinished build threads going! But what the hell - it's my life
The frame is classic 1930's - a square box with wooden formers around it to give it shape. I used 3/16 sq. rather than 1/4 as shown on the plan - save a fraction of an ounce. The tailplane was made next as it has to fit into a tailplane-shaped space cut into the completed frame! Then the difficult centre wing support structure. The Lizzie is really a parasol wing with a glazed bit over everything! The wing support is of 1/8 wire and brass tube all soldered together - I used a jig to be sure the wing dowels were at the right incidence.
