Looks an interesting build Gil.
You also have a very impressive list of "Stash and Built" there.

This is a tough build Gil.The finished model is VERY fragile.I am sure you will knock it out of the park.

No more like dont breathe when you are near it and dont try to pick it up after you have had coffee with a shot of espresso.

I put this build on the back burner when I started the UGears Off-Road vehicle.
TBH I was finding the Flyer a rather fussy build. Instructions, how can I put this? Confusing, and need a careful read. The parts are VERY fragile.A lot of glue a bit wait a bit and continue.

Now The Off Roader is done I will return to this build

Fingers crossed

Gil

This is as far as I got with this build before I started the Off Roader.

Top and Bottom Wings, Their combined weight is 37 grams ?????

The ruler is their to give you an idea of the size of this model

That kit does look frighteningly fragile Gil, as did the full sized aircraft, but take your time and I'm sure you will produce a stunning model at the end of this build. I'll be watching with great interest! Cool ThumpUp
