Yeah, I double checked the plans and went to buy my wood. Found a couple of sheets of nice C-grain wood that are very light. This thing sure builds quick! Bought the wood, cut out a "kit", and built and sanded the fuse in one day. I've never been able to do that with any other plane. You were right about the two sheets of 1/16 balsa. I don't think I would have had enough with just one sheet. Once again, Thank You, James Fritz Fort Collins, CO
