Are you bored in quarantine? I’m not. There’s plenty to do! I purchased the Guillow’s kit model 301LC, a laser-cut kit of an Aeronca Champion 85. It even flew better than my previous rubber band powered models in the past.
It was super easy to build! When I built Guillow’s kits years ago, the die-cut parts were largely inconsistent. The laser-cut pieces were cut out very quickly, and each one was perfect. This was so much more fun than in the past because there was so much less stress.
I find that the best glue for these models is a white glue with wood glue when necessary.
I covered it with the included tissue paper. I chose not to paint it because I had no model paint on hand, and craft stores are closed due to COVID. All tissue is sealed with a single layer of spray-can butyrate dope. I can no longer find it anywhere, which is a shame. It was always my go to.
