It is amazingly fast how it goes together. Right now I have about 4 hours into mine (not counting waiting for glue to dry). My fuse is built, Turtledeck sheeted and about to be glued on. As I type this my Dad is in the background laying out the sheeting to start on the wings, rudder, and elevators so we can sheet them.

Ron, if you build one, just be sure to build in some type of automatic hatch-fastening system so we won't have to chase your hatch down in the woods!!!

Jerry - you using standard wood glue for the build? Is there much laser burn to clean up before gluing? I remember building an old ******** kit, and spending hours just cleaning the laser burn off the parts so the glue would stick....

Bill H- Come on up, we can knock one out in no time.

Pete- I'm using tightbond 3 just as I did with the prototype last year. The Laser does leave a little brown edge but no need to spend a lot of time cleaning it off. Kevin has done a nice job getting clean cuts.

I have had a slight delay in the build, itís called a Job.

Matt helped me get one wing in the bag yesterday and it turned out nice.

Speaking of 200, the kit can be cut for the 150/170 market or for the 200 which requires a setback on the firewall. We can cut the engine box for either. If not sure we can cut it for the 150/170 and laser mark the engine box sides for the 200 if you decide to go that way at a later date.
