I applied orange Esaki tissue to the wing, it is delicate for my large hands and fingers to not crush this wing. Some times my fingers lock up.

Now to find some new double edged razor blades so I can trim the excess tissue off for the top tissue to be applied.

Here she is all completed after a week of allowing Sig lite dope dry. Maybe after the Santa Ana winds I can take her out flying

Yes, she went together well and should be a good flyer.  I preshrunk the tissue on a picture frame and covered the model with Esaki applied 50/50 Elmer's glue. I brushed on Sig Lite Cote and will leave the parts pinned up for a few days since this dope takes awhile to dry.

The rudders went together just fine, they are fragile so I will have to pre shrink the tissue before applying.

Scigs, youve been able to get a lot done with your build. How were the rudders to construct (easy or hard).

I received this prototype kit from Howard last month and finally got around to building it tonight.  Also I had a flood at my house and this kit did get wet but I was able to dry everything out with no issues.  The build is simple, Howard does a great job of making this build so anyone can build it.  I am building it per the plans and using plain old Elmers glue. Howard includes balsa jigs to keep everything nice and straight.
