Darn nice little airplane! I think it would be ideal for conversion to electric. Everybody I know that still flies 1/2A planes converted to electric long ago. Far less mess with much better and more reliable performance.

This is when I decided to do 3 I'll skip most of the steps for the other 2 planes but you will see them from now on.
Assembling the fuselages - doublers and formers.
