Hey guys, just got this plane for a friend so he could hang it up on his ceiling. This plane is NOT an easy build. I honestly have no idea where to start. The wings are also very fragile so you have to take extreme care when handling this thing. I just have some questions. How are the bottom wings put onto the plane? isnt there meant to be holes for it? How do i wire up the wire that came with it for that scale look? How are the top wings attached? What do i glue? I honestly suck when it comes to aircraft like these. Didn't think it'll be that hard but guess i was wrong! If someone can make a video of theirs that'll be highly appreciated.

Don't bother to reply to my query below I thought it was in the UK warehouse by mistake - it isn't, so no purchase from me!

Just before I decide to part with my money, is there a battery hatch - I want to make for electric?

The plane arrive intact! Quality looks good for the price. Will be detailing her with matt finish, rivets, wing rib stitching, weathering and battle field wear and tear looks. Plan to power her up with Saito 56 Golden Knight. Should give the satisfying and authentic WWI warbird look while she purrs pass the runway at low altitude.

Modello arrivato in 2 settimane. Imballaggio perfetto e nessun danno. Il modello é ben fatto e ben costruito. Con piccole modifiche e accessori apparirà molto più "scale" che ora. Grazie e ciao
