The key idea is…there only needs to be one rock on the hill side. I will find it. :D

A model that size with a balsa front end is going to get dented no matter how much glass cloth you use...! (Don't ask)

Hi Ken - hope the build is going / has gone well. Can I ask - did you bother to add the kevlar thread wrapping around the spars? Seems a bit Heath Robinson to me, and surely webbing fore and after of the spars should tie them together well.
