When we were looking at the house, the thought may have crossed my mind...

Good possible choice - after the Beaver.

I thought that Fokker was one ugly airplane until I made a short kit for my friend Pete (mtflyr)...and the airframe kinda grew on me.

Should be a good flyer with the large wing, but a challenge to balance given that long tail . Will be interesting to see how you design the complicated landing gear.

Question on the Monocoupe - (Yes, I bought it at NEAT)
Overall, the instructions are very high quality, but I found 2 areas that could use some improvement.

Step 13 says to glue on the landing gear.
Step 14 says to glue on the mid former, and the pic shows the mod former being between the front former and the landing gear.

Do you think these 2 steps are reversed? I think that the former is going to be pretty hard to fit over the landing gear. I imaging I will need to split the former to fit it in place.

Also, steps 30 and 31 repeat the text from steps 29 and 30. I would love to know what text there should be about building the cowl and attaching it.

Based on the quality of the Monocoupe, I want to order more planes in thie WISP series.
