This is my new project - I will return to Artur (probably) later in the year. I wanted something reasonably straight forward for a change.
These kits are very well presented, very reasonable, and with good instructions. For once I think I have all I require to complete the build, except maybe paint, so there should be no hold ups.

I do not intend to write up this build and will only be posting photos, unless I run into problems that need an explanation.

Two problems so far. There is a lot of ash on the cuts. Not only does this have to be sanded off, it makes the pieces dirty Shocked Secondly, I wanted to stain the cabin sides mahogany, but there are two different types of ply used each wit a different grain so stain wont look too good.

Hi Barrie,
Maybe you could glue on some thin veneer or some strips of wood so that it all matches up.
I had to do similar to my on my 'MOJO' build.

The side skins have been trimmed ready to fit, but I want to finish the rudder/servo installation and make a battery box while I still have side access. I also need to make a stand - usual problem - I don't have any material bounce bounce
No more until October - off to try and get another dose of Covid Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Hi Barrie,
As for not having any materials, I know that feeling extremely well.

Enjoy your Holiday but stear clear of that souvenir called covid.
