If anyone intends buying the laser cut kit, please read my notes added to the build blog - the fuselage sides and doublers had been cut wrong due to incorrect markings on the plan. I have informed Slec who do the cutting and send out the packs and they will now correct these errors (which, as said, were not their fault). As me how I know.

I am not entering the MB as I am building only for my own enjoyment and it is anyone's guess whether I will ever complete it (I am in my 80s).

Derek, is there anybody here who is not building for his own enjoyment?

Let us hear how you go along. There are not that many Skywriters being build so I would very much appreciate an update now and then. If you do not fancy creating your own build thread, post a status now and then in the chat thread (

Building gives health and piece of mind, so you may have a good chance of finishing your Skywriter!

Regards, Lucas

Thanks for your kind words Lucas. What I probably should have said was that it was for my own enjoyment as opposed to any competitive spirit. I am now awaiting the replacement parts from Slec (can't recommend them highly enough) but I will add my two pennorth from time to time.

I'm thinking of building one, but won't fly it at a MB venue, after the rufus last year, I will build one but keep it at home.
Thinking of putting a OS 61 FS in it, as I have a couple new ones spare...
