"Have attached some pics of my Blue Flash. Used basswood for the longerons. Gizmo Geezer prop. Wing DT. Came in at 40 grams. Still trimming, haven't put in full winds yet, but looks quite majestic in the air." - James N. Martin
"This [kit] got a bad revue in a model magazine. I thought I would
build it to see why. The writer in my opinion just did not know what
he was talking about. As usual no real issues though not easy to
build. Biggest challenge was the cabane struts but I did finally
get them right! Nice kit, used your scheme and tissue. Light weight,
should fly fine! " - John Majane
"I have just completed 2 of your laser cut kits, a Jimmie Allen Blue Flash and Half
a Wake. They came out really well, spending about a week of spare time on each model (total 2 weeks). Modifications were minimal, mainly substitution of Czech props (9.5" for Blue Flash, 7.875" for Half a Wake.) Laser cutting was excellent with everything fitting together just fine; I now await some spring trimming weather!" - Ted Allebone
