"I enjoyed building the Howard DGA kit I purchased recently. A photo of the finished model is attached. Since it's October and the tissue is orange, I decorated the rudder on both sides like a Jack O'Lantern. I hope to take it outside this weekend for some flying. Thanks for the kit. I look forward to building another soon!" - Bill Winegardner
