Building a 43" span Bucker Jungmeister

The BU 133 Bucker Jungmeister has been a succesful aerobatic mount for many decades. First built if the mid 30's as an advanced aerobatic trainer for the pre luftwaffe pilots, it quickly became the best aerobatic plane for many years.

At the present, the C.A.S.A company in Prado, Spain restores Buckers as well as markets partial kits. Some Jungmeisters are still flying and represent a precious era of aviation.

This plane has always been a favotite of mine. I have built the ROBBE one plus I built a FFF 24" span one which I flew succesfully before losing it to an intermittent ESC over 7 months ago.

For a while I've had plans for a 43" span version. These plans were originaly published by Model Airplane News. I never got around to start building this one.....till today!!...

I'll try to be as thorough as possible in covering the building process in this thread...
