I first saw it in a 1993 magazine and decided right there and then that I just had to build one. I ordered the plans through MyHobbyStore in the UK and waited patiently. I read through 2 RC Groups forums on the Eddie the Eagle build to familarise myself with the build whilst the plans were in transit.
I decided to make it out of Polystyrene as I had access to lots of it. I wasn't sure how the weight would be in comparrison to the Blue/Pink foam that others used. I also had some pop-up air brakes laying around that I thought I may just use incase I find myself flying in a limited LZ.
Here are the first stage photos of the build.
Note: This model is finished and had had a maiden flight but I thought I would post the construction photos anyway.It was a 6 month long build.
