Hi Brian
I did wonder if you ever finished your Orlik ????
Geoff Pearce has been posting pictures on this forum of his build, how about some pictures of your build?

Looking to finish and fly my Breguet 905 and make a start on the Chris Williams Spatz which hopefully, being a laser cut kit from Cliff, should be a quicker build.

Well Cliff, there are two types of builders, fast builders and slow builders.

And those that get others to do the build :shock: :lol: :lol:

Excuses ----
- Initially had no tug with enough grunt in this area to tow it. Now we do, can't use that excuse anymore.
- I was living in one city and working in another 900km away for 2.5 years. Back now, can't use that one anymore.
- Had some ankle fusion surgeries that didn't go smoothly. Time heals all wounds, can't use that one anymore.
- Kept promoting other models ahead in my build queue. Don't know why, bad excuse, can't really convince myself to use that one anymore.

I have been looking at Geoff's build, I will post something. Below is the panel I made from the few drawings/images I could find.

The K18 looks very nice Harry.
Looks as if the updated wing design worked out ok.
