Goldberg ARF Pitts P-12 (model 12)

Okay y'all; I got started this morning... Not wanting to order (more correctly being too impatient) I hunted around on the internet till I found a panel that I was satisfied with, ... did a little PhotoStudio magic on it and printed it on photo paper, laminated it with clear lamination material and called it good... My wife will make the backrests and I'll figure out something simple to give the rest of the cockpit floor some detail... It doesn't show much through that tinted canopy anyhow... but will look fine... I know they are not technically accurate, but nobody is going to know anyhow... Least wise not in my club...
One thing I didn't like, and that kind of surprised me was that on the top wing ailerons, one was fully 1/8th inch longer than the other... The openings in the wing were exact, but I was really taken aback by the difference in the two ailerons... Other than that, I have NEVER been so impressed with the quality of a kit of any sort... be it plane, boat or what ever...
