Default Remember ?

After many years, these kits started popping up on ebay.
I bought this kit over the winter and just finished it up!

I used titebond and UltraKote!

This was my first high wing trainer back in the day!

Nice job, and a good pick on aircraft - she was one of the pioneers of "modern" radio flying. Wouldn't mind finding one of these on the bay myself.

My personal favorite would still be the SIG Kadet, which is what I learned to fly on back in the day, and the DeBolt Champ - which I also still fly regularly.

I have a kit at home! I solo'd on my dad's A-Ray a loooong time go. Have a special place in my heart for that model!
