    You could of course cut the wing just past the fuselage and made it into a gull wing. ;)

    Yes, it will be neat to see it again after all these years. Scientific advertised this kit for a short time then discontinued it. I guess it wasn't popular enough to be profitable. Here's an ad, I...

    I remember some of those kits. It was like, "Take these blocks of wood and carve and shape to resemble this final outcome, which should look like a model." ;)

    AFAIK, it was a known fact 40 or 50 years ago that kits were overall good sport planes, but if one wanted something that flew better replaced the kit wood with contest grade balsa and ply. Emphasis...

    Actually more likely than not, a part of kit engineering was to figure out how to pack the plane in the tightest box possible. This is why one ended up splicing longerons, flat fuselage sides were...

    Nope. Everything has gone to ARF's and what builds there are have gone to plastic film coverings. Dope is more or less a thing of the past, unless you build control line airplanes or free flights. ;)
