After examining the kit for the Spin construction starts swiftly. The construction manual reliably leads step-by-step through the phases. There are no blueprints and they aren’t necessary because all parts fit into each other like a 3D puzzle. First off, the fuselage.
Now that I’ve finally got more time for my hobbies, I’m granting myself an old wish: a pure glider. After much to and fro, I’ve decided on the Spin made by Skyglide (german website).
Finally, there’s some progress to report. After a long interruption and some changes I’m back.
Let’s briefly graze the essentials: due to a move I relocated everything concerning my model railway to my father’s and a good friend’s of mine. Only my oldest LGB loco, a Stainz, is at my place and awaits reconfiguration as an accu-powered R/C loco.
The model aircraft flying had to lie dormant for a long time, too, but now I’m active again. I shelved building the Ka8b because I simply lack the time to cut every piece by hand. The existing parts are stored and it’s quite possible that I will continue the build. However it’s very unlikely to happen this year.
Instead, I purchased a small DLG kit.
