Whoa big fella. You slipped ahead of me there! Are you going to fold the three wing sections and then join them ?

Hi FB. I like the note. I have also reached a stage where I need to leave notes to myself.
A question on something else. What tool do you use to cut the flutes? I have glued blades together,but often cut right through to the skin on the other side.

Do any of you use the Phoenix simulation program? I am in the process to make scenery, but woul like to start making different models. Is it possible with their program?

If anyone is interested, i have a rather good looking one of Signal hill. Hope to have one of Hoogekraal soon.

Imagine flying with yr favourite plane?
