let's see what we have.

2 pages to the plans. one is for the fuse/rud and the other has the wing/ stab.

nice little bundle of laser cut parts.

can't wait to dig in to this plane.

well, i couldn't wait until the weekend so....
i jumped right in!

i'm going to lay this build thread out in the order of the directions.
let's start with step one of the fuselage.
nothing is glued at this time. parts are just wedged together.

Rapid progress! That's funny - tonight I placed 4 roundels on my S.E.5a. You built a fuselage.

Hey Sarge!

I realized I forgot to put together a photo pack of construction images. So, if you find something you don't understand, send me an email, or give me a call. I'll build up a couple more planes this weekend and take lots of photos.

Nice build thread Jack. Keep up the great work.

I like the plane but have never worked at that scale, for RC at least.

I saw one on display at the Toledo show and also saw it fly at the Saturday PERF Micro Invitational. It flew quite nicely.
