Tim, I'm going to echo everything Gravman just said. If you have the nerve start a spreadsheet, I have. The numbers are starting to squirt out the sides on mine.
No worries Tim, look at all the sideline quarterbacks, you have already.

Yeah, considering how your 36' MLB turned out, we all know this one is going to be a dog.

Somewhere in my ''storage area'' I have the hull from a Lindberg sporty, may have to build that up with wood and plastic and whatever other junk I can find around here.

Framed !


Frames are in, still some trimming to do on them, as this is my fist time with a scratch build I am hearing the echoes of other more experienced members reporting that plans/patterns dont necessarily match up as they should, planning partience are required for any degreee of success.

Gotta pick up the pace to keep up with that guy who's building three at once !

The nice thing about this model is that the shears are flat unlike the 63.. Tim, as I look at it, you're off to a fine.clean start.
