Thanks Kev, I just thought I needed something very simple after the work thats gone into the Mosquito ... but I'm almost there, hope she flies good

This should be a nice little quickie and should fly nice and slow as well, one or two guys have asked me if I can do some instructional videos, working with Depron (rolling, bending etc) so I might try and do something with this one as its a very basic build and I can try the wing front radius with the fork

Then I will work on the CriCri ... that is proving to be a little more difficult than I first thought

Looks great Lockey!

I built something similar last year though not straight sided. These planes fly real good and have great manners. Mine has a KFm2 wing.

I especially like the last image with the cockpit and pilot. May have to add that detail to mine.

Looks like I might have to change this to a "build log" ... I have printed the plans and ready to go

This one is a very easy and straight forward build, would anyone like to build it along side me ? if so, can you let me know and I will send you a copy of the plans

Yes. However, I am not certain I can build along side you... you build faster than I, and I am trying to finish two planes within the next fortnight, for our Club's annual Float Fly.

This will be my first depron scratch build, after decades of balsa and a couple years of FFF and EPP builds, and three Polaris kits. So far I have only drooled over your more rounded/rolled depron designs. Perhaps the TLF can be my stepping stone to more advanced depron builds, like your Sea Wind.

Please PM the plans. I have and use Sketchup if that helps.
