West Wings Merlin

Earlier in the year I purchased a rather old edition of the West Wings Merlin that had been languishing in the back of the local model shop for quite a few years.

I was hoping my son would build this, but it was a little too tricky for him so I decided to build it.   Like previous West Wings kit, the balsa is a good grade and well selected.  The plans are very easy to follow and in just a few hours of work I had the 35" wings and fuselage constructed and ready to cover.  Not bad at all, an excellent beginners model.  I just need some spare time to cover it and I will report back on how well it flies.
