Elipstick 260 Build

A club member asked if I was interested in building his Elipstik 260. I took the kit home to review the plans and read through the instructions. In the next few days we agreed on a few terms and I started building. Here is what I got so far.

This is a cool little plane. I might have to build one for myself.

Feels good to be building again....

A building hint:

While its not important on some models, it is best to push the pins in beside the wood rather than through it. You can trap just about any piece in place with 3 pins.

No more split wood
