    As I remember it, SIG came out with the Mk-II and - at that time - figured INCORRECTLY that the original Kadet was history. Mk-II came out Spring 1980 and by Fall they had so much feedback they...

    Absolutely Tom! Actually, there's a balsa block on the plans that's the only "planned joiner". Take a look-see here:2076789

    Well, it's started! Ribs are cut and trimmed, spars & TE are cut and the right wing skeleton sits on the table - unglued as yet but it'll be glued as soon as I get the jigs sized & cut properly...

    I don't care who you are - this is funny.

    Problem is, it's also probably got more truth to it than we'll ever know.

    Hoss, as much as I normally disagree with you, this is a good one. Well done.

    Yeah, the Hog actually doesn't look too bad at all. Fuse looks GOOD, wing just needs a bit of TLC - no problem. I'm with acdii, it's a SIG plane - therefore it's definitely worth saving as much of...

    ETpilot! Of course you can have #185 - and welcome to the SIG Kadet Brotherhood. It's never too early for a brother to announce, never too late either.

    Yup! Phenolic sheeting - precisely what SIG said. In the "thick" department, the Kaos has always been touted as having a thick wing that precludes speed buildup. Wonder how thick that one is.

    Hi Mike! Yeah, I've never actually seen one "live" either. Been working on sizing the ribs drawings so they match the sizes on the plans - just finished the last one about 10 minutes ago and...

    The answer to that is easy, at least for awhile yet. Take a look-see at http://www.wanderings-ds.com/whs/sig-history-1.html

    Curiosity got the best of me awhile ago.

    Hey guys!
    Justin, you've got a pretty good eye! I measured each of the ribs and, allowing for my lack of precision, the ribs come out between 20.4% (low) and 22.7% (high). Once I add LE, TE &...

    At long last I have them :D - plans sheets for the 1966-era SIG (RC4) Stratus. I've had a thing for this plane since it first came out 49 years ago, and in all that time I know of only one that's...

    Good pics!! Yeah, I don't think that at this point I've ever had a plane that didn't see everything come together for at least a few minutes. Nice to see that I'm not the only one that does that.
