    Trying to stay busy on this project. Working on wrapping the ailerons. A pain if nothing else. Had to glue one side first and then sand the other side to fit.

    Let that dry overnight and start on the next one.

    I like to make sure I'm level when I sand. ;)

    Spar for 2nd wing half was too warped to use so Don at Rcaiir.com sent me a new one. I hated that as that eats into his profits but this isn't the 1st kit I've bought from him and won't be the last. 20180607_204845.jpg

    Not a lot to report as this build has slowed down a lot due to my son's baseball schedule but I made the flip of the plans. Right side of wing building starts tonight.

    I just checked the company where you bought this kit, I was impressed as the number kits they have ...and the Nelitz kit, is very decently priced, now to the question, how do you find the quality of the kit and and is is more of a builders kit , or lots of assembly instead. also what is included in the kit

    The owner, Don, loves classic pattern planes like me so we've known each other for years. I have several of his fiberglass pattern kits (Atlanta, Phoenix 8, UFO) and they are the fiberglass fuse, foam wing, stab cores and the hardwoods for inside the plane. The Cub is wood, cowl and plans (lots of wood). I think he is going to offer landing gear kits someday but assuming mine is a 2-4 year project, I'll worry about landing gear later.

    A couple of minor details in the laser cutting that have since been fixed and a slightly warped main spar (he sent me a new one) are the only issues so far. I might order his Nelitz 1/3 scale Taylorcraft someday.

    Found a cool way to square ribs to the spar.
