Problem Child

The difficulty in the Lippisch build mainly stemmed from my inability to keep track of a very important piece and then proceeding to crush the next one. I usually keep all of the intricate parts, finished landing gear, and ordinance in a small container to gaurd them from getting ruined or lost. Unfortunately, I failed to employ this method while building this kit. I figured with the lack of parts, I could keep an easy eye on the whereabouts of them.
Aside from the drama that I created, all went a little better than expected. I have never worked on a PM Models kit before and I was ready for a fight. The fact that it was such a cheap kit (in price, not quality), I was gearing up for a project build. The normal issues came with this build along with a few much needed improvements. I will admit that I had a great time with the Lippisch. Frustration crept in from time to time, but what project doesn’t come with a side of adversity? I am pleased with the result of my work. It’s such an odd little plane and that’s what makes it attractive.
