Assembly of laser cut items and stringers always goes pretty fast. Adding plankingand other details items slow things a bit.
But that is part of the building a large scale glider.
Result to date looks great make sure things are kept straight and level when adding tail bits and planking. An Obvious remark, but experience tells me you cannot be too critical on that issue

Cliff,

Any idea if there is a materials list for the glider. The plans don't give any info at all to wood dimensions. Id like to know whats involved and available wood wise before ordering a kit of parts ….

thanks

Adam,
I suspect that in common with other ‘short’ laser cut woodie kits, the full Bergfalke kit comprises a plan & set of laser cut formers, ribs etc/other specifically shaped balsa/Liteply/Ply parts.
The builder needs to study the plan to work out what other standard balsa/ply/metal sheet & strip materials are needed to complete the build.
From my experience, any designer (certainly true in Jilles’ case) tends to identify standard wood sizes on the plan, which you can normally get from SLEC/Balsacabin etc. although you may need to splice standard lengths to get the overall length required for wing spar etc.

Peter
