That's too bad.  It looks clean and has a unique color scheme.  I'd like to see yours fly.

kittyfritters, replaced the lost parts, but I cleaned my room and misplaced those parts again and just now found them in a box.

I will not finish this build that has taken too much time (my fault).

SORRY! Life has a habit of getting in the way for the last 3 months. Embarrassed

The tissue is complete, but I have lost some parts due to clean up of the house and will need to replace. Cry

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:

  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?
