Has anyone ever built this plane, surely to god there’s one out there built from this short Kit, there would have been a huge benefit If it had been prototyped, and the fixes were sent in , I am going to build the fin with 1/2 LE material as well and cut a new fillet, another quirk is the bottom laser cut piece for the rudder was to short, by 1/4 inch the thickness of the post. the fuse top also has the 1/2 inch slot , a good pointer, a true Builders Kit !

It turns out there are missing ribs in both Kits, the root ribs of the tip panel, R8 on the plans , Kit supplier in Texas is aware but un responsive to request for parts
