Welcome to the forum David.
 
Nice model, I've just assembled one! Put a OS91 in it - but that's another story which you'll find in another thread!
 
The Chippy goes together well and everything slots together nicely. The only problem you will find is at the tail end. The whole way the rudder/tailwheel goes together leaves a bit to be desired. First you have to locate the tailwheel bracket and the giudehole exactly in line with where the rudder/fin hinge line will be - without any template/jig or guide. That's tricky. Further the way the rudder crank is held on to the wire that is feed through from the tail wheel, through the guidehole into the rudder itself. With just a grub screw this is just asking to work loose in my opinion. File a flat of the wire and CA the screw well.
 
There are no other problems I found.
 
If you do have any difficulties just post, folks on this forum are very happy to help
