    RE: Has anyone built a





    I had a few minutes between Home Depot and work this morning to stop home and get clothes...

    The parts I have checked seem to match the plans at a glance-don't know if that would be the case with a set of plans from someone other than MAN/AirAge. I was really glad the spar laminations were already cut, making those laminations is something I have always been loathe to do, along with cutting a hole in a perfectly good wing for a servo.[:@] It's funny what he dislike about things we enjoy doing,.. I don't mind getting epoxy all over me when molding a fuselage and I cut tool steel all week long at work, but I hate cutting thin plywood.

    Anyway, I'm excited to get going on this. Can't guarantee regular or steady progress due to my time constraints but I'll update as I go.

    No, unfortunately. I'm going to be a checkbook modeler for the near foreseeable future-I'm starting to pack for a move into SWMBO's condo until we can find a house to buy.

    RE: Has anyone built a

    funny you should ask, after finding out my dad will go to SMALL with me I was thinking about the Chips because it's a Randolph design and how it would be appropriate to take it. I'm thinking it will be diesel powered..

    I still don't really have a place to build, and my airplanes are here, my parent's place and my friend's. I'm pretty cramped.. Should be possible to build my last LMH100 kit, doesn't take a lot of room to put a helicopter together.

    That's really cool you will be going to SMALL with your Dad. Hope all goes well with the house search and I will keep my eyes on the build when you start it. I just started a Bridi Load Star 40 (not 1/2a).

    RE: Has anyone built a

    No, what little bench space I have is still covered with stuff I used to get ready for SMALL. I'm trying to buy a house right now-we're so packed in here with both of our stuff that we can't even walk a straight path thru the living room....

    I just don't have the facilities to build right now. Charging batteries and minor repairs is about what I can manage if I stay on top of the clutter.

    You know, the kit is only $30 or so.... why not order one? You would probably have it done before me..

    I bought the plans a year or so ago. That Lazer Works kit looks great as I'll be ordering it soon.
    If anyone knows which issue of M.A.N. the build article was it may help.
