Slingsby kirby cadet mk3

Have now started building the cadet.
Building to 29% which gives me a 12 ft w/s, a nice size to fit the car for transport.
Fuse is 1.9 ms long and each wing is just over 1.8 ms.
Have a build log going here for those that are interested.
Will have built up wings and tail sections.
The fuse is hot wired foam,news print and fiberglass.
The structual center section is made up of 6mm ply formers and these attach to the main wheel frame work.
Will be a center section for the tow release to mount onto .
Still doing design work as I go along.
Keeping my fingers crossed,as Ren from Preimer Pilots is doing a new 1/3 glider pilot and hoping one of these will go in this glider.
