Spotlight Review

"First-time build, and an enjoyable experience"
The first such stick-and-tissue model I've assembled, ever. (That abortive attempt as a 12-year-old I discreetly decline to remember.) I am told Dumas' products have a good reputation, and this certainly did not disappoint! This being a first-time, I took my time. As I was weight-insensitive and wanted the time to take care with alignment, I used a wood-glue. Not knowing anything about laying tissue, I made a bit of a hash of it. Finally succumbing to impatience, my landing-gear arrangement is not particularly durable. (The interface between the decorative balsa truss and the bent-wire is probably tricky to get right, in any event, and in my case would probably have benefited from, say, some tightly-wound thread brushed with glue.)
