Free flight rubber powered scale plane

I thought it was timely to have another go at a free flight rubber powered scale aircraft.   I've been looking at the range of scale aircraft from Gillows for quite a while, however, I've been reluctant to purchase  any of these as I'm not familiar with the kits and I try purchase UK products rather than imported kits where possible.  However, this weekend I took the plunge and purchased a Gillow's 1/24 scale "Bird Dog".

This has an 18" wing span and is relatively easy starter scale kit.  The balsa quality is reasonable and my only complaint about the kit is that the instructions are printed on the reverse of the plans which makes construction a little tricky at times (unless one has a photographic memory!).

So far so good, I've got the initial construction completed on the fuselage (apart from the final sanding and finishing).  If I can get some time this week I will attempt to build the wings and tail.
