Thanks, Mike. I made up a board and documented my build which may prove helpful to others - whether or not they use the Easy Built sheet metal.

I mounted my mag board on MDF as the moisture in any glue may warp the plywood and take your board out of flat. Experience speaking here.

While Dave offers a nice setup with the magnet board you can go to Home Depot or Lowes and just get a 2X4 ft sheet of galvanized metal and put it on a 2X4 ft ply wood sheet (I'd suggest 3/4" thickness) and they have cabnet magnets that come in all kinds of shapes and sizes (for keeping the doors closed) that you can use for building model.  Might be a bit cheaper.
That's what I use.

Thanks, Tom. I am ordering the Turbo Cessna 195 from Volare and am reviewing all the posts from the link to Hip Pocket.
Probably time to order that winder and a metal building board from Easy Built. It's going to be fun. Smiley

Volare's new Turbo Cessna 195 kit... it's a short kit and has very good reviews and George includes free templates for printing the tissue .

In the late 80s I flew indoor under the guidance of Don Lindley and John Schageter. (Their enthusiasm will always live in my heart.) My models were Bostonian and NoCal. Just before retirement in 2007, I was persuaded to give up my Opegaard (sp?) stripper and Wilder winder. So, here I sit in Albuquerque with a dearth of tools. No stooge. Nada. Zip. But we have an indoor site every Monday. And I still have the building skills intact. Smiley I am bored with the RC Vapor. I need to return to those glory days of carving my own props and trimming. So the question is...what NoCal kit would you recommend I start with from either Volare or Aeroaces.com?
