More parts arrived today. Here is what I have so far... just waiting (oh so impatiently) for the kit.

VarioProp sources are hard to find, but the one I used for blades and will probably use again is here: link

I love Vario props. If they were not so expensive I'd have them on most of the planes I own (except WWI of course ).

Indeed!! The hubs are fairly expensive but after the initial investment, the blades are dirt cheap and normal props just don't cut it (for scale projects) after using these.

I'm expecting the kit any day now.... just got my Zagi wing today so I'll be running two build threads simultaneously. link

Still no kit.

I was looking forward to a weekend of building but I guess not.

Finally!! Must have gotten lost in the USPS system cause StevensAero shipped quickly. Oh well, it happens.

Here it is as I unbox it. Looks good!

First Mod. As mentioned before, I plan on adding a "scale" light system so here is the red blinking LED installed in the vertical stabilizer. Of course it still needs a final finishing fillet and smoothing but you get the idea.

Next step, the wing. The main spars are 3 separate pieces glued together to make a full length spar and here they are fitted to the center rib.

Laying everything out and making sure its all flat and square. Gluing everything to keep it that way!
