I built one last year. Bought it a LHS marked down to $50. I have to say the wood was very heavy and poor quality. Nice cowl moldings. I used 2 eco sp600 with 8x6 apc. Used a cp2400 8c pack all the way forward. This is a large plane with a huge cord in the wing. Came out pretty heavy (72 oz). First flight hand launch it tip stalled and smashed into the ground. ripped out the wing mount and broke the left wing off just outside the nacelle. In retrospect, I would use 8x4 props and possibly bungee launch. Just haven't got around to fixxing it and trying again.

I still have my Blenheim and still fly it. I have put it to one side though for winter and plan to fly it again over the Summer. Any further info I will be happy to help you with. Also see the following link.
