"I just finished my DÉBUT embryo, what a cool plane. I plan to use it at our Scale Staffel contests here in San Diego. I came up with this way of popping up the stab to keep the tail light and to dethermalize quick. One small piece of SuperSport rubber glued to the stab and the rudder with the fuselage notched out at the leading edge of the stab. Keep up the good work." - Bob Overcash
"Pictures of my finished model. First stick and tissue model I've built in 40 years. The kit was really nice -- a real pleasure." - R. Wayne Lowery
