I bought this project a while ago and just now getting around to it.  I really enjoyed doing this and went together very quick and easily.

Here are some pictures.

Nice job on the plane. It is one of my favorites, and someday I will try build it just like this.

Looks good. At what stage of assembly did you put the diagonal braces in? I get that question frequently.
Have you got any tips and tricks about the assembly of this project. Would like to hear them.

Hi Bill

I would also like to know your tricks for getting the diagonal braces in your project.

I have trouble getting them to fit just right.  I get them cut the same, but then the wing might be just a fraction off and they don't fit tightly enough when I go to assemble the wing.

Also, how did you paint them?  Before or after you assembled the wing.

Thanks for any info you can give.

-Udie and Ken

Well, nothing like being late on an answer. I was looking through the forum and just found this.

I put the wing struts in after I glued the bottom wing on. I just put in each strut in and then put the top wing on.  Then after all the struts where in the correct holes I carefully pushed the wings together until the struts were even with the wing surface, the glue helped in the lubrication. After the vertical struts were dry I put on the cross struts. I had to adjust the angle to the wing surface with sandpaper a little at a time.

I painted all of the struts before installing them. I did not paint the part that went into the holes, l just touched up after.

I hope that answers the question.
