This is one that Ian would enjoy. My son and I have a good bit of involvement with combat but this is something entirely new to me. A friend of mine was in a hobby shop that was recently closing. He called me due to stumbling onto this combat kit. I figured why not pick it up and I'll build it. So I get the kit and I will say never building a British kit before this was nothing like I ever experienced. The bellcrank supplied is a piece of sheet brass you cut and file to shape, the tank supplied is a bunch of pre bent parts that need to be soldered together. The leading edge is just a piece of square stock that requires extensive planing and shaping. The ribs were just rectangular pieces of 3/32" stock that requires all ribs to be sanded to shape. All in all it was a neat build and now it needs to be covered. This plane is built like a tank and weighs about the same. 10 oz's as it sits now, the engine is 8 oz's and I'm still without covering.

               Yesterday, I assembled the entire wing completing the engine nacelle last evening. I drilled for the dowels and epoxied and glassed the nose in last night. Other than that the entire model was assembled with carpenters glue and rubber bands. My engine choice will be the Enya MK II 2.5 diesel. I added the phenolic pads to the nacelle due to the case being so deep.
