Almost.  

Jason is printing me the missing left hand strut with holes for the lines and I still have to deal with the broken tail skid, but that's it.

A lesson in patience getting it back together and some parts scavenged from another kit.  Propeller, right hand exhaust, all struts, machine gun, and windshield all broken or missing when I got it.  But it's flyable although it will never again see airtime while in my possession.

Had to make all the control parts for the will fly model.  Bell crank, rod, control horn, and mod the fuselage for the exit holes.

I have hoarded just enough white, yellow and black Lustrekote to paint it like the original.

Thanks Eric. As Victor said - "Not bad for free." Smile

I always use red tube Testors cement. At one time I had little faith in it, but it works miracles repairing plastics if used properly.  Blue tube Testors doesn't hold nearly as well.

I cut a slot with a razor saw in the linkage and set the control horn, waited 24 hours and it's solid as a rock.

Thanks, despite me it did turn out rather well. A testament to the kits designers.

This one is on it's way.  The companion to the SE5 available in both kit and built C/L models.

From the sellers description: Italics mine.

In The early 60's, K&B Aurora tried competing with the  Cox, Wen-Mac, AC Gilbert and Comet companies producing "Ready to Fly" Control Line model airplanes. K&B Aurora produced about 8 different planes of Hi-Impact plastic and powered by single and dual gas engines (Stallion .049 and Tornado .060) The planes could be purchased two ways: Ready to Fly and a Screw Driver kit for a few dollars less (no cement needed ,assembled with small screws provided)  (see photo # 11 for copy of there K&B's  ad. ). Aurora discontinued their gas powered line of planes very shortly after their introduction due to customers complaints, returns and liability issues. Aurora having already invested in the cost of making the molds decided to advertise what remaining stock they had as:  Static Models, with no provisions for a gas engine or control line flying. BEING AUCTIONED this week is one of  the  "Static Models" offered by Aurora in the mid 60's. This is one of the planes from their  "World War I Series",  sold mail order through the American Hobbies Center.

Needs help, but I'm eager to find out if the firewall has provisions to mount an engine.
