Wendell Hostetler 33% Gee Bee R1-2

This Wendell Hostetler Gee Bee R-2 is going to be modified into the long tail version R1-2.  The short kit was provided by National Balsa and will be the first time I have built one of their laser cut kits.  Having done laser cutting myself, I have to admit that I am not all that impressed with this short kit.  The material quality is nuts on but the laser cutting leaves a bit to be desired…more details in the descriptions below.  Follow along with this not so often modeled long tail Gee Bee R1-2.
