Default Three new kits (for me)

I just received three kits from Quantum Models, an Ace Simple Extra 230, Sig Hummer and a Lanier Stinger 10. I think I'm going to start with the Simple Extra. It does look easy to build. Glad to see the Hummer is still around. I had to have one of those. The laser cut parts on the Lanier Stinger look great, this is a quality kit. I hope to have all of these flying by summer.
Any tips on building these planes??
thanks, Lynn

I have a Simple Sukhoi. Pretty much the same plane as the extra. It is a one day plane. The parts fall together. if you open the box, put a bottle of Ca, close box and shack out falls the air frame. I have mine powered with a Hornet 0.09. I have not beable to fly it. I have had it for oh some where around 2 to 3 years. I tis one of the many planes hanging waiting for there first flight.

It looks like it will frame up fast, not that many parts. I don't know about the glue in wing. I noticed on the plans it was designed by Fred Reese (Littlest Stick)

Funny you say this, my sailplane flying buddy Bill Miller had a LHS in Jamesburg, NJ. years ago and said the same thing to a kid. The next day he got to meet the kid's really piss'd off father. It cost him a kit, but he laughed about it for years.
