Gents,

RED ALERT, RED ALERT, RED ALERT!

This COULD BE the worst model I have ever attempted!

OH MY, where do I start?!  I have almost pitched it 4-5 times in the two weeks I've tried building it.

NONE OF THE PARTS fit.  Totally frustrating, but it will not beat me - I will complete it!

Tonight, for instance, since most of the struts DO NOT FIT, I went out and purchased wooden toothpicks and filed them down to use as struts - LOTS AND LOTS of struts - one at a time!

I'll spare you the details for now - a picture is worth a thousand words!

Yep, another Eastern European model that was owned by FIVE previous owners who "punted" on it! That should have been my first clue to RUN, not walk away from this one for $10.00.

I will post a few tonight and then follow up.  Oh the pain!

Mike




OK, I have completed the Muromets....decided I have put enough time into this one so sans rigging, here it is, "warts and all" to see!
