How can one resist all those struts! But wait, there's more!

Proto-type in the pin-up stage, making sure all the things line up. Mini-blind wings, bass wood fuselages, styrene tail assembly. Struts are .030" styrene rod.

Why build 5 or 6 at a time? It takes the same amount of time to make 5 as 2, so why not make 5 or 6 to share the fun? At least that is what I keep telling myself . . .
Now back to the Gotha G1 build!
