I've removed this photo from the F-16 build. The problem with the plan is resolved.

And these are 1/32 scale decals from the UK beside the printed tissue included in the kit. The large decal is the same size as the small tissue one. I'll probably use Guillows decals for the wings and paint everything else. The decals cost L4.50 and L2.50 shipping. Sorry, no pound key on my keyboard.;-)

This is the plan. The folds are a pain but I can live with it as I'll be cutting it apart to build the wings. Now I'm concerned about the wheel size. On here they measure 1 1/2", the included Guillows plastic wheels are 1 3/4", and using the 1/72 scale plastic kit as a reference, they should be 2 1/8". WTF?? It looks like a long road ahead...

The plan arrived today, all neatly folded. Great.

The formers are mounted on a "beam" of 1/8" balsa, not this stick, and the stringers are then glued in place. I'll be cutting the center slot in the formers inside the printed lines and trimming to fit with the xacto blade.

Temporarily housed in this kit number, this is a 1/72 plastic kit for reference. Too bad the decals are shot! Molded in 3 colors!!
