First scale project questions

Post by Dave still »

I am looking for a scale build for next winter I like to plan ahead so I can get bits and Bob's up together, the main project this year is to learn to slope fly.
I have seen a couple of designs I like the look of the Spalinger S18 II and Slingsby Petrel I would get a laser cut set for which ever I choose. My first question is would either be suitable for first scale?. They both have gul wings do they present a problem to build?

Either of the gliders you have selected would be good, however, the Petrel is probably your best bet as there is plenty of info available on the build here and it is a proven flyer! The designer is also a prominent member here and always very helpful. I can supply both kits when you make your decision. Sarik Hobbies in all fairness can also supply the Petrel. Up to you where you decide to buy from. Good luck

Thank you I will read some build threads etc. But the Petrel is probably favourite at the moment.
