Default Anyone actually build and fly a Golden Age 20 inch Fokker D.VII?

I've been nibbling away at this old school kit for a year now:

I build a little and set it aside then go back and build a little more.

Compared to all the other quillows/estes/stirling/peck kits I've built this seems very frail and under-designed.

I realize that the goal is to build in more lightness but this doesn't look like it would survive one bounce off the ground. I'm even wondering if it will survive the rubber band being wound.

Any experienced comments would be of great assistance.
