Enjoying the great builds so far. With outdoor projects completed for the time being, I'm (belatedly) ready to join in this cookup and have started on the SE5a. When I say 'started' I mean I've pinned the plan to the board and freed precisely two ribs from the excellent wood of the laser cut sheets. Really looking forward to this one!

I need to get my finger out and get stuck into the Camel. Can you suffer from ADHD at 51??!

Wings made. Only one mistake so far (that I know about): I used the light 1/16 square strip wood for one of the lower spars, rather than the stuff from the stiffer sheet as specified in the instructions. How nice to have the choice though. Very impressed how the parts fit so exactly over the drawing and go together so well.

Pete, looking good. I dont know why, but the Se5a always looks like a compact litte plane. I like that a lot. I am sure this one will be a heck of a flyer!
Keep the news coming...

I did some work on the cockpit panel. Since I have a pilot for the moth, I did not want a printed instrument panel in this plane.
The 3D instruments are not scale, not even the layout of the instruments. But in my oppinion, this kind of cockpit panel fits better in my planes.

Everyone's models are looking far more advanced than mine...! I have looked at the plan, honest!

SE5 tail parts done- all very easy. Have also made the jigs for aligning the wings. I'm looking forward to using these.

On to the fuselage now...
I agree with you, Roman- there is something about the compactness of an SE5A which is very pleasing to the eye.      

(Loving the Tiger Moth cockpits by the way!)
