Default RE: ARF vs Kit build?

If you want to be really technical about it, there are five levels of model airplane construction.
Just to muddy the waters a little more, there are also partial kits.... basically plans and a few of the more complex parts (eg. formers, ribs etc.).
Good point. I suppose I assumed that a short kit is still a kit, since adding the sheet and stick parts doesn't take any more skill than picking out the needed sizes and materials.

If you wanted to argue about "skill levels", I guess you play hard ball and insist that a regular kit doesn't require the skills needed to cut accurate parts from stock. And around and around we go!
