    Thank you. It is actually quite hideous, but it is a work in progress. So many pieces don't fit correctly. I am still going to do my best to make it an airworthy project, but I have to admit that while I was on vacation I actually considered scrapping the whole project and moving on to something else. in the end, I decided to keep going until I could not go anymore. So here I am. A little more progress tonight... It may not look like much, but there is a lot of measuring and altering of parts to get them to someone fit.

    Did you get that from the "Crooked Old Man" kit cutters ?

    Not teasing. Your doing great trying to make it work. I have seen some poorly cut kits before but it looks like your having to mod the width's of the formers as well as the stringer cut outs not lining up correctly. Your a more patient man than I am ;).

    Thank you very much. To be honest, I'm not taking as many pictures because it's embarrassing how bad it looks. I'm a perfectionist when I work on a project, so this one is absolutely killing me.

    My Cub kit had many issues, no fun paying for something with serious shortcomings.

    I'm determined to be more positive about it from this point on. It will be a significant accomplishment to take something so messed up and make it into a flying machine.
