      Mine has arrived...wings (all 4 sections), stab/elev, and fuselage all have their own bags and there is a foam stand for the fuselage!

        Just picked mine up at the local Kroger parking lot! Driver was happy......I live on a dead end dirt road and he really didn’t want to back that 53’ truck/trailer down a dirt road in the rain!
        Jim mentioned the bags that come with the plane......be for warned that you will either need to keep the plastic bags that the wings come wrapped in or make new “liners” for the bags from felt or some old sheets......if not your pretty white wings will have sliver marks all over them real quick! My seat pan suffered a bit of damage in transit......it has a hole punched in the bottom/side......not a problem because I was going to felt line it anyways.....also I might need to hire a very small Chinese woman to install those rear wing hold down nuts on! My sausage fingers have a hard enough time just getting back in there much less putting a nut on a threaded rod! Doh! All in all it’s a very nice plane for the money spent.

          I would like to single out Jeremy at this time for his diligent work at making sure those of us that bought our planes thru him got them delivered to our home address.......if you recall we where originally suppose to take delivery of these at Cumberland last November.......due to compliance issues that date was missed...... originally all the planes where to be delivered to the Model Box and then Jeremy was going to bring them up to us.....he was able to get Horizon to change their shipping policy and allow items bought thru the Model Box to ship direct to us......thanks again Jeremy! Job well done!

            Thank you Tom and all of you who made the purchase through The Model Box. In return I thank Ali Machinchi and Joe Ballard from Horizon Hobby to have made this possible!

          FedEx pulled up in front of the house, got the box down into the shop and got everything unpacked. Looks amazing! Really excited about this sailplane. Between the holidays and work, probably won't be a lot of progress made until after New Years, but stay tuned! For now here's the photos of the unboxing.

                The FedEx guy asked me if I wanted to check contents before he left. Then he asked me what it was and, he too, was pretty excited about it so I showed him some vids on our site. I let him know that since the box wasn't crushed and had no fork lift holes punched in it that it would be okay... which it was!

              Does anyone know if the fluorescent orange can be wiped off with lacquer thinner or something without effecting the white base coat? Not relishing the thought of having to sand it off. Mine won't show up till Saturday so haven't had a chance to fiddle with it myself just yet.

                Bryan,

                That is not fluorescent orange. It is anti-collision orange. If you remove it, the chances of a collision go up exponentially! Don't do it.

                  Good morning everyone

                  yesterday was christmas for me too, very happy of the quality of the kit.

                  If if you want to judge by yourself here is a video I made yesterday during the unboxing, it should let you have a pretty clear vision of the product.

                  as always if you have questions I will be me than glad to answer them

                    Nice! Even after seeing the prototypes your video has me even more excited for delivery. Fedex just sent another email and the trucker must have made really good time as they are now saying today! Woohoo!

                  Wow, awesome. Drooling over these. Excellent value. This will be a workhorse glider that really can handle all conditions. Are you guys adding SLS?

                    I'm going to stick with sailplane for the time being. I know some folks don't have regular tow pilots but to me having a "save" lever sort of takes something away from the challenge. Who knows, may add the SLS at some point.

                  I am with you Bryan, going pure sailplane on mine too.

                    Mine will be sailplane only, too. It's a nice thing with the seat pans being fiberglass. I won't be giving out any glass ones as was done with the ASW-20!

                  Yes....I am adding the motor and prop to the front of mine so I can go out to Broadass Flats with you and flyat the Hanover Field!

                    Mine will be a pure sailplane as well.

                    Also just got my graphics for mine from Callie today! It appears that the German flag on the tail is painted on?

                      That's strange, mine is already applied. Good to know its a decal though! Should be able to remove it.

                      Ali told me that the first 20 or so had them painted on.

                      Looks like you may need the Binford 580 Turbo Grinder with the #20 grit carbide disk...should come right off!!!

                      That is one slick surface! Look how the 'painted on' flags fell off!
