Help!
Guppy 2 Assembly manual

OK so here is the deal; I ordered a Guppy 2 kit 62" wingspan from a guy on ebay thinking that it was just an individual in Canada. My kit arrived and it came from China from a company by the name of skymodel.taobao.com.
The kit is very nice and the quality of the wood and cuts looks very good, here is the catch the plan is average and it is in Chinese (literally LOL).
So if anyone out there has a building manual for this specific model that is willing to share/sell I might be able figure out the plan
Thank you

You can buy them off the person that designed it for a mere $19.

I looked at yor link and the image of the kit does have some variations in the cuts of wood.

This build log for the original guppy might help with building sequences.
And there is always the guppy 2 thread.

Thanks for the input I did bought the plans from Mitja's website yesterday, great help.
I had looked at the original Guppy but is very different build. I hope that this company is working with Mitja on this kit otherwise I feel bad to purchase something from someone stealing his design. I emailed him asking him about this kit, will see. Thanks again

Sorry Elbone65 it's no the same. I recall Mitja responding in one of his posts that it's a poor copy and also some other guys who got spoofed on Evilbay as well and complained!

Yep I exchanged emails with Mitja and apparently this company stole his design bastards! Just another example of chinese innovation... NOT!
