    I have bought a Nelitz 1/3 scale Cub kit from Don at Rcaiir.com. Don primarily sells classic pattern plane kits (I have bought a few of those) but he sells a few giant scale kits as well. Looks to be a nice kit. Very smooth laser cutting.

    A little issue pops up. Main spar is 5/16" but rib slot is 1/4".

    Pretty easy cut with a Dremel. Except I have about 40 cuts.
