Hello,this is my Bristol Boxkite.It required a lot of pattience to cut and join all those little pieces but I think it's worth the effort because it's a nice airplane.
best regards,
MK

Great job! DId you use the kit pieces for the struts and frame, or did you make them out of something else? They just look so smooth and straight.

Thank you!
For the struts and frame I glued FG plans over two sheets of heavy paper and thant cut the shapes accordingly and than sand them lightly.
Think that it wold be easier to use thin wook or balsa! :roll:
