I'll be using a Nitro Engine on it, probably an OS 55, as I prefer using a larger prop

Sirji,
Looks lovely. Does everything fit, or are there problems like with the Sunbird kit?
Last month I stumbled across a Lucifer kit on RCB (75” towline glider)
Got one right away.
Excellent laser cutting, and good 7lb/cft balsa.
Unfortunately every part is on 3mm sheet. Including those which should have been on 1/16” sheet, like leading edge sheeting, cap strips, stabilizer parts etc. So disappointed that I put it aside. What’s the point of a kit if one has to replace sheets...
But then who buys A2 glider kits, anyway.

Every time you build something like this Tiger Moth, you tempt me sorely to follow suit.
Fortunately I already have a Tiger Moth.

Thanks for inspiring me to start on the Marvin...
Regards

Iyer sir, thanks

The manufacturer of this kit is Ele RC, and till date I have successfully built (and posted here)

Griffin
Spacewalker
Piper Cub
Cloud Dancer
Red Swan

Frankly, there are minor glitches in parts fit with all, increasing with the complexity of the kit, and this is the most complex of all  Wink. But then, kya farq, we are modellers!

The Lucifer is a manufactured product by RCB! The only reason I didn't buy it because it would need a power pod, there being no provision to fit a motor in the nose

If there i a problem like you described, you must take it up with RCB!

It's painfull to us, means all modellers, when our modelling time is used for our motherland, which we can not deny, and we have to give our 100%, as I am also feeling same..

We have to unite and to prove ourself to make indigenous products as well as marketing / Canvasing them. I'm sure we must achieve success if we try unitedly.

The wingtips are reversed from the original!

I thought about correcting this, but the lower wing has the aileron as part of the wingtip, and that would have been complicated. So I decided to go ahead with the kit manufacturer

I'm using Hinge Points instead of the supplied Mylar hinges

They're easy to use, and very reliable

I start by fitting the ribs into the main spar. The laser cut slot in the ribs is a little small, and needed to be widened with a needle file

Three ribs are joined together so as to create a slot for the interplane struts as in the above photo

A servo tray has to be fabricated, and sits between 2 ribs
