Stevens Aero Stella: Building Thread
I had recently asked Bill Stevens to send me a AXI motor mount for a different project, and when the package arrived, I was happy to find, besides the AXI mount... a Stella!!!
So, with Bill's blessings, I'm gonna start a building thread on the new Stella.
Before I begin - a word of caution: I did not get a manual with the kit, so what you see here is my interpretation of what needs to be done. Don't assume it's correct. In fact, I'd appreciate it if Bill and Scott would jump in every now and then and correct whatever mistakes I'm making in the build. Once again, I'm building this without any instructions whatsoever. That in itself should be a testament to how great Bill's kits (and Stella in particular) are...
So here we go.
First, the tail group - no surprises here, except that the vertical stab and rudder are slanted backwards, and that the elevators are significantly larger than those on the G-Ride.

The triangular pieces for the wing bolt blind nuts are attached to the former F6. At Bill's suggestion, I installed the blind nuts at this step, rather than later to make things easier. BTW, what you see in the picture is wrong - the blind nuts go on the other side of the triangular pieces (luckily I caught this before I glued them in...)
