I just realized something. I looked at Eddie's pics and when I opened the left one my eyes went to the Paragon, not any of the moldies.

Huh... I guess there are a few moldies in that picture. I "wood" have never noticed them if you hadn't pointed them out.

There was a kit I wanted, a Sagitta 900. Guy wanted $300 for it. I guess that was fair, but.

Time to clean the table, and either finish the Sagitta 600 or open up the Bird.

You can get laser cut ribs for the Sagitta 900. If you really want to build one you might think of going that route. You can get the plans from RCM plans for around $20 I think. Rib set might cost you $50. Scratching out a fuselage would be fairly easy. It would be a little more work but would cost you a whole lot less than $300.

Yes, I can scratch.

Lemme do the BoT, then I'll see about the Sagitta.

After the Fauvel.

Hey congrats and salutations Don! she is almost the right size to pilot your Merlyn, had it been built but she is gonna grow faster than that kit i bet haha!

Al the best mate.

Katie, sell something and get an intelligent programable charger that does the lot! you will never regret the investment and can make up any variety of charging leads/plugs.
