Just thinking ahead for covering material, I see you cant get Solartex anymore, can anyone recommend an alternative product?
EDIT: just found some, OK so its going to be either white or natural, is there a difference, its hard to tell from the colour chart on line.

Truth is I'm currently working on the tail feathers and there appears to be a couple of pieces of balsa missing so it will slow up somewhat until I can source some replacement, no RC shops near me so will have to order online , :( I did like to take a trip out to the RC shop have a look at all the stuff I couldn't afford and carefully hand pick balsa sticks n sheets for best quality, oh well how times change. :?

Pilot seat and Harness:

The ply seat took a long time to cut out of the 1.5mm ply the shape is barely marked on the plywood face, considering that all the other ply parts have been easily pressed out, I can only assume that there is an issue with the press which is not good considering the cost of the kit, not happy :x
