    Building the Skytrex Albatros DII.

    Apart from the lack of a propeller this is another straight forward build suitable for a beginner.

    1. Clean up the castings.
    2. Drill through the prop boss to fit prop (Not supplied with this kit).
    3. Make prop in two halves from plasticard.
    4. Clear out holes for cabine struts, and wing struts.
    5. Glue in cabine struts. Make sure they are the right way round.
    6. Position wing struts and glue to bottom wing using top wing as a jig to ensure correct alignment.
    7. Glue on top wing, and re check alignment as it goes off.
    8. Fill any holes left in wings and then file and wet and dry to a smooth finish.
    9. Turn plane upside down and assemble undercart.
    10. Align components and glue in place.
    11. Spray plane with primer.
    12. Paint plane.
    13. Glue in the two halves of the prop blades.
    14. Apply decals of choice using micro set and micro sol.
    15. Allow to set up over night.
    16. Varnish in your choice of finishes.
    No real notes needed for this one. Wysiwyg.
