Hah! Doubt that. Smiley

In other matters, Lurker Industries continue to set new records for low productivity.  Two days to finish off the wing pylon, fit the ventral & dorsal stringers and a few gussets.  Shocking bad show.

There is a certain amount of satisfaction in achieving a new personal worst.

Very neat and a challenge of dexterity and patience. How large is it?

Today I finished building a kit that has been in the wardrobe for 30 years or so.

Its from the Hi-Flier kit. The printing and selection of the wood was excellent. Weight is 25g without rubber.

I might use it for kit scale if that happens again soon. For that reason I resisted the strong urge to put a co2 motor in it.

Very nice indeed! Looks like an ideal Kit Scale contender, and you can always convert it to CO2 later.

Nice - especially the engine!  The Peck Pietenpol is a lovely mode.  It was my first ever Peanut which I powered with a Gasparin G-28 so it was heavier and faster than I'd have preferred!

Very attractive, the Willow Wren. Are you going to cover the wing top surfaces only?

Yes.  Wings & stab topsides only in line with Peter's notes.  Tissue will be pre-shrunk and left un-doped.

Managed to pick up on my Hammer F3F.  More of and assembly job than any real building but interesting all the same.  At least I've tissue/doped the sheet tail feathers.

Will prime and spray in 2K.  Did similar on a junk CL profile Nobler as a test shot.

Cheers

Mike

Willow Wren is airframe complete barring some tiny little bits of sanding.  Decided to finish it as a Blue Wren.  Got some nice lightweight pale blue and antique white tissue.  No idea if the blue is correct for the Blue Wren and don't care if it isn't. Smiley

Weight as seen ~ 2.7g

Fuselage  0.95
Wings     1.13
Stab.     0.25
Fin       0.05
Struts  < 0.16 (blanks cut, but not cut and sanded to size)
Hook    ~ 0.14 (paper clip, cut & bent for sake of approximation.).
