    It sounds like you are pretty knowledgeable. I have a DLE-30 that I bought last year and tried to start, but it doesn't seem to suck fuel. Is that a common problem solvable by a carb rebuild?

    I think I may stick to original plans for my first few designer kits. Have no clue how to mold my own glass parts and probably am not well off enough to purchase one-off gear.
