Flushed with my completion rate in GBs this year (we'll draw a veil over my complete fail in the Bristol GB), I'm feeling positive about entering one I didn't mean to line up for. Not least because it clears out one of the longest residents of the stash. I'm up for the High Wire High Wing GB with the mass produced and massively overlooked Cessna 172 Although it's been in the stash a long time, I'm sure I didn't buy it when first released in 1972! https://www.scalemates.com/kits/eidai-005-100-cessna-172-skyhawk--239238 Remarkably, even after all this time no parts have absented themselves It's in that remarkable plastic of its day which probably renders it unworkable to anything short of an arc-welder- we'll find out soon enough. Also they have that curious translucent, slightly flouerscent (I've no idea how that's spelt really) hint that I find slightly unnerving so a grey primer on everything to start things off. The instructions are suitably entertaining Though I'm not sure how much I'll be referring to them. I'll try referring to my memory and see if I can dredge up what I originally had in mind. I think it was something to do with making it as a tail-dragger, but who knows what'll happen... time will be tell.
