    Thanks dnalor, had a look at your one. By God it's good. Would love something of that size, but I don't thing the divorce would be worth it.

    Thanks dnalor, but noticed that myself last night and rectified immediately. Was wondering why the wings tended to 'flap' until I noticed the extra part lying around. Curses were voiced that little ears should not hear, I tell you. I seem to learn more from imcolds pictures than his instructions throughout the build. Again thanks, and any more advise would be greatly appreciated.

    :)
    yip...i builded also with much help from the pictures..
    But i also asked Imcold also for help.
    For the engine and fuselage the instruction are perfect..

    But when you've got questions just ask...maybe i still know it :)

    I'm partially to blame here, I forgot to make the instruction diagram for this wing-holding section (and no one complained about it) - sorry about that! I will look at it tomorrow.
