Black and Orange look like great Halloween colours! I cringe at even attempting a close rhyme with orange.

Bob,
Nice progress...I like the orange and black.  My grandsons reminded me than nothing rhymes with orange.  No extra charge for that nugget of knowledge!  Grin Cheesy Wink

OK! its time to continue with this build after several of life's interruptions Shocked

I have continued covering the wing and started the fuselage, but for the life of me I cannot find the nose block and prop. I know it is here some where Cheesy just need to move some more piles of stuff.

The following photos should bring me up to date.

Looking great Bob...KF made a nice kit, especially with the additional 90* tools included in the kit to assist in building the fuselage!  This is going to be a fun model.  Keep up the good work! Smiley

I had some trouble with the nose cross pieces, but that was more to my on ability and work area. It all came together in the end:

Page 2 and 3 of the instructions deal with the alignment tools to build the box fuselage square:

  That bottom stringer looks like it has a big curve in it.  Are you soaking the balsa first for this curve?

Tom, the wood has enough bend to not need to soak in H2O.

This looks to be a fun model Bob...Kittyfritters has done a nice job with this kit.  That bottom stringer looks like it has a big curve in it.  Are you soaking the balsa first for this curve?

I just received the Laser cut Bostillation kit from kittyfritters to see if an average person like me can build from the plan, instruction booklet, and materials provided.

Howard, thanks for the kit. Upon opening the box one can see the quality is really good and was shipped protected from the USPS man.

The following information describes what is included in the LASER CUT kit.

Build photos to follow soon, now that Ive started the kit, and so far it is easy to construct with the alignment and assembly tools provided.

Bob
