I am mightily impressed with this kit. The laser cuts are really fine and the parts are held with the tiniest nibs.

The wing goes together really quickly and aside from a few tacks of CA is almost totally dry assembled before final gluing. I cannot fault the assembly.

This was emphasised when I trial fitted the fuselage. An almost perfect sliding fit!

Because I was involved in other things I forgot to take photos. I have also been using it as a training exercise for my little workshop helper who has shown a propensity for chewing wood!

Still more to do but this is the wing dry fitted to the fuselage.

Wow.. nice fits for sure! No wonder Lilly likes it! Is the fuse basswood? I thought it looked a bit thin.. then I noticed there are no nose-doublers. Judging by the burn-marks.. maybe the wings spars are hardwood too?

Sweet looking plane there Ian.  Are you training the dog NOT to chew wood by placing the plane on top of her?  Down, Stay, Don't Chew!!

It is a "stand off". We out stare each other followed by praise and a fuss - sometimes a treat. She is very affectionate and I can put my fingers in her mouth, she enjoys having her teeth brushed with doggy toothpaste - but I have to remember that her jaws are incredibly strong - She can burst a tennis ball in her mouth!

Over here, Den Saxcoburg is the sole distributor.

Nose doublers are 1/64 ply, the fuselage is 1/4" medium hard balsa but will have a 1/4x1/4 basswood strip glued to the bottom.

The wing has strategically place 1/64 ply reinforcement for the top spar and a 1/4 x1/4 basswod strip for the bottom middle bays.

Thanks for clarifying that Ian. Make sure you keep it out of the doggie's reach when you're not working on it.. Laughing She may consider it "her toy too"... tongue

Very Nice ! The fit is incredible, the curves in the wood are a classic this should be a good flier from the feed back on the sites about his kits. The prices from England to Colorado are incredible too Laughing Looks like all or most of his kits are for elect. Any way Nice build Popcorn
