Finished the left wing up to removing it from the build board.



Now that the LH wing is off the board, I'll build the RH up to the same point.



This build continues to challenge me in a very rewarding way.

Very nice work. The biggest plane I have is a 30% Skywalker, looks intimidating with all that wood in a box that weighs 22lbs!! One day I will tackle it.

I asked my friend about his alergy to epoxy.

He said that during his hiatus from the hobby (15 years) the alergy seems to have disappeared.

Not much help to you.

Please treat that allergy with the greatest respect- We found a friend unconcious in a heap on the floor.
EMT's pumped him back,and asked about it.He "didn't think a little would hurt".
It does/ will...
He can't even go near it now.


I am so enjoying this build !....Hide the credit card !

Excellent work! I love reading builds of this plane and this kit. You make the work look easy. I have one of these kits with the fiberglass parts that I can't wait to build. I look forward to your experiences!

That is sobering. Thank you...I will be VERY careful to stay away from it.

Fibertech n More just sent shipping notification, so my FG stuff should be here soon. Not that I'm even CLOSE to ready for it yet!

Thanks for asking...these things are strange. My wife is a doc and we've spent the last year troubleshooting this...it simply isn't easy to pinpoint!

I received the FG parts from fibertechnmore.com. they are really nice. I am glad I don't have to work with the plastic pieces that came with the kit.

On that note...if anyone wants my plastic stuff...pay shipping and its yours.

Save your cowl blisters. They may come in handy on some future project.
