"The model is basically to plan with the optional fuselage cross bracing and some extra bracing at the wing dihedrals, tail tips and nose. The covering was attached with a UHU glue stick, water shrunk and covered with acrylic lacquer. Awaiting a quiet day for the test flight. This is the first model I have built completely myself from plan. I found the ffscale.co.uk website an invaluable guide." - Alistair O'Connell

"Attached are the pictures of my Easy Built Model's "Wakefield". 14 strands, 30 inch long motor of 3/16 inch rubber motivates the 18 inch diameter balsa free wheeling propeller (folding prop is being installed at the time of this writing). It is a very nicely flying model indeed. As you can see, the flying field here in California is rather dry and rough so the landing gear is made of 1/16 inch wire to make the landings nice and smooth. Thank you for producing this great, interesting model." - Paul Kramosil
