I'd be very interested in seeing a build log if one is available.

Btw there is a Nurflugal forum here http://www.rcgroups.com/nurfl-gel-762/?daysprune=30
(I've posted a link to this thread)

Ditto - looks fantastic. To me the Horten 18 is probably the peak of the Horten brothers brilliant designs and possibly the most beautiful aircraft ever drawn. Given its intended use I'm obviously very happy it didn't fly as planned in 1946 but it puzzles me that their ideas aren't more widely adopted and still haven't made it to commercial flight so many years later.

I wish!!
Way I read this is Raymund did the design and lofty built the prototype.Raymund will be starting his own build sometime in April,linked from his website.Presumably a kit will be for sale at some point.

Off topic, I know. But has anyone else noticed that whenever anyone takes a photo of a plane with a larger than 2.5 meter wing span they always use the smallest person they can find to 'model' it"?

Wow, this plane looks huge! :-) Just kidding... Very nice build and love to see it fly as soon as it is ready. Is there still a lot of work needed
