Hey Tom!
The design didn't ring my chimes at all till I saw it "in the flesh (tissue?) at the contest last year Smiley.  The price asked for the kit was WAAAY to favorable to pass up, making up for any other deficiencies.

Covered the new stab last nite and weighed it... SURPRISE!  Tho nearly twice the size, plus the added tissue area, it weighed EXACTLY the same as the scale one - within 1 mg (okay, I only used a single spar on the big one...)!  Big one 0.251 gr and 0.250 for the smaller.

Staub,
Nice looking bones and the stab looks very nice!  I'm going to have to build a couple of smaller models in the near future.  This is nice looking. Did you get that I think it's nice?!!! Grin Wink

The acceptance that my planned trip to this years IIFI in Nijmegan will not happen has also created a partial vacuum in my building processes Undecided.  The totally unusual weather we've had for the past year has not helped either Tongue.

However, bowing to suggestions from others who have built/flown this particular kit, I've built the enlarged stab.  It's almost twice as large as the "scale" one and I feel that it is really a bit overdone.  The model is said to fly with the scale stab but is very sensitive to any upset.  It is also claimed to end up very nose heavy - especially with the (cut down) plastic Peck prop.  A carved one is in the planning stages.

Almost all woodwork done with just the nose-block to shape and drill for the thrust button.  The kit supplies a peck 1/8 button with the 3/64th hole, along with a diamond shaft - way overkill, but probably chosen for weight which the model will likely need.  I prefer a 1/32 shaft on these small, light models, so it'll get swapped out.

Bent the LG wires (front and rear) from the supplied 0.4mm stock - was a real PITA, but got it done without TOO much cussing Roll Eyes and the main wire is glued in.

Mojo is slowly returning Cheesy.  I actually have the wing almost completely framed up - just the spar to glue in!  I've only been able to glue a max of two or three ribs per day due to further degraded tactile feeling in my paws, but I'm almost there.

This buggar is shaping up to be a sub ten gram model that I hope to have completed for the contest in Nijmegen in November (along with my 24" CO2 powered Citabria).  Peanut scale was won last year by this same kit, and Ithink the flyer used condenser paper for covering.  Haven't decided what I'll use (have to order some "C" paper), but I do have a stock of 7 gram "Tengujo".

so far, the fuselage and tail feathers come in at a porky Roll Eyes 1.10 grams.

Finally got all 18 ribs glued in.  Now to store enough energy and patience to add the leading edge and spar.  I've been advised to build the larger stab shown on the plan - tho it WILL fly indoors with the scale one, just LOTS harder to trim...

The plan recommends a Peck 6" prop cut down to 5" to allow RoG, but I'd prefer a carved one...

Pete,
Glad to see you're able to get back to modeling.  Hope things clear up for you.  This year has been the biggest building slump I've had in a very long time.  Hang in there buddy.  We look forward to more progress.
Tom

Good to see you're back to building, Pete...at whatever rate you're comfortable with.  Smiley  The Ganagobie looks like you're "almost there," and yes, I'm patiently awaiting more on you're beautiful A-26. Wink  I've built the Invader twice...the first was an abortive attempt as a nine year old...the second was many years later...that attempt was successful.  I've seen your glide test on Youtube...outstanding.  Your Invader is a sweetheart!

The Ganagobie fuselage DOES NOT look easy to construct...but you've done a wonderful job of it!  Really Pete...she's a work of art.

Lots of problems to overcome the past couple of months, with little time for building.  Things have calmed down somewhat, so I've gotten back to this build and the A-26.

The wing has been a bit of a problem, being that the ribs are very thin balsa - 1/20th (but closer to 1/32nd) - and there are a LOT of them (18! Shocked!).  I've gotten them all glued to the 1/16th sq. TE, doing one or two per day (hands won't accommodate more - one of the "issues" mentioned) and am planning to do the LE and spar today.

This sucker is turning out to be my lightest peanut to date - and, so far have not managed to break anything!
