By STEVE FAUBLE
In order to make this building as painless a process as possible, I have tried to design a production capability into my planes. The first thing I decided was that cutting all those ribs then sheeting the leading edges, etc., had to go. This left a foam wing, of one type or another, as the alternative.
What makes a good combat flyer? If you're not one of the very fortunate few who was blessed at birth with nerves of steel, the reflexes of a gunfighter, and the eyesight of an eagle, you must practice. This means flying actual matches with their accompanying whumps, thuds, and sudden silence. All of these sounds mean that you must lock yourself in your room and build more airplanes. These new planes will, in all too short a time, end up in the trash can with their brethren.
