Hi looks like you're off to a good start and I will be interested in following this build. I recently picked up this kit on Gumtree, as it was cheap my intention was to use it for spare parts but to my surprise it was a lot more complete than I expected. My biggest problem is there are no plans or instructions so I don't know exactly what's missing. When l finish my current build I would like to attempt this kit it will be a good learning experience and I need the practice. Looking forward to seeing your progress and BTW your balsa parts look better than the ones that are supplied in the kit.
