Finally had the last assembly and control surface check.
A few things noted to sort out, but ready to start covering.

Cheers Mick, it has been a pretty enjoyable build. Fred has done a great job with the design and cutting, I wouldn't hesitate to buy another of his kits.
In fact I've always fancied a 1/3rd scale Grunau Baby...!

Having had a great day at Middle Wallop on Sunday, I'm trying to have a final push to get the Ka3 finished.
It was great to see two other examples in the air, albeit from different kits/plans. I had a good chat with Bill Cooke about his machine, finished in the colours of the full size at Lasham. Apparently the first two flights on Saturday were a bit challenging, due to a slightly rearward c of g, but on Sunday, with a little more lead in the nose, she looked lovely in the air.
