Sophisticated Lady Upgrade article.....

Does anyone remember the article in Model builder or RCM about upgrade options to the Carl Goldberg Sophisticated Lady kit. I seem to have lost that article. It talked about a number of things to try to make the airplane more competitive. How about it? Thanks

There is a slightly upgraded version of the Sophisticated Lady already offered widely as a kit. It is called the Gentle Lady. ;-p Less likely to have the tail break, and less likely, if built to plan, to stab some poor spectator to death in case of pilot confusion or radio failure. (SL is awfully pointy, wonder if it's actually contest legal?)

R A Cores offers a kit for a faster wing.

I don't remember that article. I had a GL with an E205 wing many years ago. Lots of fun to fly.
