Default Let the gluing commence....

Due to its mirror split design, building on any flat surface is easy. It also helps keep the plane straight laterally.

However, as there are no reference plans, itís difficult to determine if the plane is being built like a banana (i.e. nose and tail sagging). ** Recommendation to Custom Wings to provide a plan to lay the build on so that I have a reference to build from. **

I recommend laying down a piece of tracing or semi-transparent paper and making vertical lines where the frames sit. It was designed in metric, and found most frames are 80mm apart. Then trace the outline on the paper and flip it over to do the other side, and like magic you have a reference which should match the first side.

1:48 plastic kit for reference. Doesn't really help at this stage though.
