attached horizontal stab and vertical stab -----
rudder and elevator temporary --
I plan on painting my model with Stits polyfiber paint system,
light sanding of all surfaces
paint all surfaces with Stits poly fiber FC900 sanding sealer , filler , hardener , primer , covering adheres better try it
sand all surfaces probably use mask , no fan , vacuum to pick up white powder
fiberglass on fuse next --- I will use 3/4 oz. fiberglass cloth and Minwax polycrylic ( 2 maybe 3 coats )
Solartex covering on wings and fuse (turtle deck and bottom of fuse ), rear fuse sides , etc
Heck just cover the whole plane

Yes, indeed. I bought a set of plans for the Aeronca Champ when at the Toledo Show from Wendell and to date I haven't considered buying the kit because I had no idea how the builds went. It does look pretty much straight forward but there are always a few twists and turns.
As of now I'm not sure I'm going to go with it as I have realized the amount of building space required is beyond what I have available. I bought a Sig 1/4 Cub and considering selling it as it's an impractical size for my build /work shop. I just finished a Kadet Senior and I had trouble with the size of it.
Yes, by work shop is that small.
