Now you’ve got to build two more so you can demonstrate proper tied together aerobatics!

A year on and she is still in the same condition.

I was not happy with the finish and I just sort of gave up.

I need to re cover the whole model and sort out the slop in the elevator controls and finish the rigging.

Just can't get motivated with models at the moment.

sorry

Hi Tony

I think this lockdown is having a similar effect on many of us, so much time that we just want to put everything off till later and no rush to do anything.

Stick at it Tony, I put lithoplate on mine and did not like it so I stripped it off and still not 100% happy but as it is only going to be a club field flyer once in the air it will look the part. When I get to fly again that is another matter.
