Well if you have been wondering were I Have been, the answer is my basement. After repairing. An annoying water leak, i have decided to finally build the last plane kit I have left to go, a 1/3 scale Sopwith Pup 108" wingspan. This should consume most if not all my free time for at least 6 months, so if I'm not on much you will know why😄

Will you have to cut a hole in the wall to fly it out of there?

That's what I was thinking!
And are you going to put a diesel engine in it?

It is still a pile of wood right now, I'm still getting my "shop " put together. I need to build 1 wall so I can mount shelving to it and then add more outlets. The main building bench is done though.
Here's a link to the kit I'm building.
Hope it works

Keith you might want to check that link as there is no engine listed there that I can see.

Balsa USA has been around for decades and there kits are held in high esteem. Should turn out to be a very nice plane and well worth your efforts. Be fun to see how you get along with this project.
