I never had any luck with these balsa kits, they tended to end up in the trash eventually :(

Very nice work on your Stuka :thumbsup:

WOW, that is Cool!!!! I can't remember how many of the old Gullows kits I started and NEVER completed any of them. Very difficult to build. Excellent work!!! - Denis

I used to compete in free flight outdoor scale rubberband powered stick & tissue models in our model airplane club. My favorites were the Peck Polymer piper Cub, Sig Monocoupe and Mr. Mulligan.

Looks great to me!

These Guillow stick and tissue models can actually fly, I built a number of them years ago and learned to NEVER add any paint to them if you intend to fly them, the paint makes them too heavy. Also not adding the landing gear helps.
The longest flight times I ever got with mine were about thirty-five seconds which in those days I was quite proud of.
