Another lovely example of the ASH26. I’ll get a few more images online, but works in progress. The ASW27 is my guinea pig before going much further on this.

A few pics of Johns build below until I can get some time to take some photos.

I’ve located a 3 view with all my measurements and will convert it around the 1/4 to 1/3rd scale, so about 4m wig span.

There are a couple of versions, this 4.5m span, a smaller version at…
