I still have templates for the decals if Daniel is interested.

I thought having to design a model from scratch would slow Daniel down ... but not a bit of it. Below are the 'bare bones' of his scratch built Fairy Delta FD 1:



I wonder how the wings is to be attached ... and who will be the first to ask Daniel for a plan?

How easy is the DH108 to build ? Considering my inherent clumsiness.

Some progress on the Fairey FD1, yes I have indeed enlarged the horizontal stab and will probably cut in some trim tabs. Need to hollow out the intake next. Very lightweight.
