Hi all, as promised, here's the first few pics of my Brodak Wildcat build and so far it's been an easy kit.
Wildcat build Wildca12
Laying the ribs out to check length.
Wildcat build Wildca13
LE and TE in jigs and dry fitting ribs the fit has been nice so far. One word for those who might want to build this kit, The slots on th both the LE and TE don't exactly line up to the plans. the W2 rib slots therefore must line up. if you get the W2 slots lined up everything will be fine.
Wildcat build Wildca14
All the ribs have been added then glued as well as the LE joiner.
Wildcat build Wildca15
Test fitting the fuselage top half.
Wildcat build Wildca16
Another view of the top half of the fuselage. This has to be a lightly snug fit.
More pics to come as the build progresses.

I think Ron mentioned that looks like  a baby ringmaster wing and I agree. I had a baby ring with a TeeDee and it was a blast to fly.

I don't know for sure, but it looks like a bigger wing area then a Baby Ringmaster (which is good) more like the Brodak Clown?
