Nice Eugene!!!

I'm working on a 24" SE-5A. I'll try to get the wifes phone off her for a few minutes and get some shots of it. Fuselage frame is almost complete. Rudder and elevators are done. Wings are 1/2 done. 

These stick-n-tissues are a great break from the plastics. 

Stay safe.

Got the wings done last night. Now I have to start sanding the whole thing. Here are the pics.

Got a couple doctors to see in the next 2 days. Maybe I'll get something done, maybe not. 

Stay safe.

Haven't done much stick and tissue, but the ones I did were a mix of fun and frustration.  I could only afford the printed balsa kit back in the day and cutting out the parts was brutal.  I may try a modern laser cut kit - bet that would be pretty fun.  Reccomendations?

 

Thanks,

John

You are absolutely right John. I had to cut out almost every piece by hand. The 1/16" strips were a mess. Good thing I have quite a bit of scrap pieces left from other kits. Couple of the wing ribs were missing too. No problem, scrap box to the rescue. But, even with all the problems, I'm having fun doing these and that's the name of the game right?

I did make one of the newer laser cut ones a while back, can't remember which one,  and it was OK building but the wood was harder and heavier. I remember giving it to my neighbors grandson after I took the rubber out and fixed the prop to spin free.

Stay safe.
