Looks good Tim and as you say PDQ,mine were bog standard from a free pull out plans in one of the mags and I had quite a job to get the gear in the red one as you can see.

The ground did the blue one but the red one just gave up with old age,ended up in a skip at the local recycling plant,gave it a lob and it did a nice stable glide to the rear of the skip.

Odd thing is his web site is still up and running,with a header as above you would think the web site would be gone.

I cant remember now,built it 3 yrs. ago and its still in the garage as yet unflown,I got the plan from Derick Scott and I think its scaled up by 10%

I'll check it out later and let you know,I also did the KK Falcon and scaled it down to 62" from 96" with ASP 30fs up front and as yet unflown.

All built with 1/4 " square and 3/32" ribs.

just for future reference check out Derick Scott at Model plans UK,he provides a very good service and he will scale the plans up/down for you at no extra cost,also his plans are top quality.
