Hi Chris,

Have you been able to obtain a canopy for your model? I am located in New Zealand and am the custodian of the ASW15 canopy plug that I built in conjunction with Jilles Smits the designer of the model you have built from Brisbane Australia. I am coming to England stay in the Wirral with family for two months in June this year and am also a friend of Brian Sharp. I am intending on visiting some slope events while there and would be pleased to meet up and see the model you have built if at all possible.
I also have a short kit for this model I obtained from Jilles and intend to build it on my return from Europe during the NZ winter. I have a KA6e of jilles's design that fly's very nice. I generally hook up with Jilles at least once a year when we visit Australia at least once a year, or he comes to visit Family in NZ or attends our major Aerotow event at Omarama each year.
Refer to the following for views of NZ flying ( My KA6 is reg F-CDYL being a model of the full size in France) pictured in some of the pics on the site:

Hi it's been a while since my last post, having got and fitted the canopy, I have been flying the plane, must say that it flies very well, and the other fliers who have seen it fly, have also committed on how well behaved the plane is. taking pictures is another thing, nobody around to take pictures when you want them, but here is the finished plane waiting for the next tow
