By the way, Top Flight back then was a different company than it is now and I know for a fact that no one there was with the company back then so they really have no reason to know much about this kit.

Top Fight is now owned by Hobbico. Dont' remember when it was bought out but seems like it was in the 80s. I've been in their facility and was offered a job with them in the 90s but we failed to agree on compensation so nothing came from it other than fond memories. It was a very fun and interesting interview.

I built 0ne 0f these when going to tech school in '65. It is a 24" wingspan and I am not sure if a .020 0r .049 was recommended. I think the Schoolmaster was the 36" version. It was made for the "Galloping Ghost" rudder only system. Sheeted wing Never had an engine for it so it never flew. Was my first kit and relatively easy build for a kit
