I've already received mine.   Beautiful work,  excellent cutting,  great plan and instructions.   Mine was cut for my old Cox Space Bug engine.  This will be the first 1/2A model I've built in years !!!!           THANKS !!

Thank you for the orders, and please post some pictures of the finished planes.

Greg, received my kit today. Wow, nice job! Parts, plans and instructions look great. I believe this one will get a Cox Medallion or a Norvel .049 and a hard tank. I will post a pic when I finish it.  Thanks, Ray

I have to apologize to everyone who purchased a beam mount kit. In my haste to get the kits shipped, I forgot to include the addendum instructions for installing the beam mounts and the type of reinforcement used. I found them in my office. I'm posting them here and in the vendors corner. If you can't download and print them let me know and I'll mail them out to you.

Again, my apologies,
Greg

if I arrive before I return,
keep me here until I get back!

Now I'll be looking for something in the 09-15 engine class.

Thanks, Richard K.

Left my comments in the 1/2A section.
