Hi all

Putting together a Seagull Thunderbolt at the moment and seems a pretty good kit but always makes me chuckle when they state "Only a few hours needed and its ready to fly" Christ what laugh that is eh lol! lol! lol!
Always seems to take me about a couple of weeks in what spare time I get and you always end up having to adapt parts and chop em about.
Have you lads ever slung one of these ARTF'S together in 6 hours as they state Mad

ARTF (Almost Requires Two Fortnight's)

Gary, your not alone mate! They never build in the time the box says!!! and although we all have our favorite fittings we like to put on in place of the supplied bits.. the standard of some hinges, clevises and control horns is shocking and of course can very easily be the weak link once its flying!

Worried about you mate, why arn't you wearing the willy warmer I got you for Christmas? if you wondered why its got the initial "RN" on it then I'm double worried.. if you gently stretch it from each end you will see it actually says "RainmaN" !

Like Ray said, box times are far from fact!
Having said that, I built a Weston Magnum over a weekend, but, at the other end of the scale, the Tigercat took around three years!

Ian, your Tigercat was well worth the wait, I love watching her fly and the engines sound great! although she might be a tad heavy to risk the undercart at our patch for a while yet!
