New build. The balsa is pretty crappy(light and weak) with this model, so what I usually do with these pieces is to; 1. Cut out the parts very carefully. 2. Give each piece a coat of 50/50 elmers white or wood glue (I prefer the wood glue). 3. Lay on a flat surface that hase wax paper covering it. 4. Cover with another piece of wax paper and top off with some heavy books. This will prevent the wood from warping when drying. 5. Allow to dry for a couple of days (patience little beavers) 6. After dry, give a light sanding on all glue edges and outside surfaces... Its not good for weight, so flyers beware, but it sure makes a strudy piece, albeit a lot of work and time (which we do anyway for this hobby).

Little beavers? Yes, by all means. May I suggest you kill the flash? It really isn't needed with digital cameras and the glare washes out much of the image.

This is my next build, I didn't realize how large this plane was.
