incomplete nose piece

The glider nose came in two pieces; should have been one connected piece. The B folds were not cut; had to make them. Other than that, everything went together well. On the first build, you really need to follow along with the video to not miss important steps. I had already built 2 small FT gliders, so knew what to watch for. Building the simple FT planes is fun and educational for children, i.e., grandkids.

I am scratch building a simple soarer I bought the 8 pack of pushrods along with powerpack B. I'm sure I'm not the first scratch builder to find out that they are several inches too short for the simple soarer. I now have a package of totally useless pushrods. You might have mentioned that somewhere in your video.
