Improve Directions

Posted on Updated on

This Mini-Max kit is 30 years old and has seen numerous improvements over the years in the design. However it seems like the directions have not been improved much at all.

One example is the procedure for building the fuselage. The directions say to build the fuselage sides, apply plywood sheeting to the sides and then join the two sides.

When I followed this procedure I ended up with some cracked wood. Some other builders have posted on ETLB reporting similar experiences. Other builders have suggested a different procedure and I also feel it is a better method.

Build the fuselage sides, leave sheeting off, join fuselage sides and then apply the RS-657 side sheeting.

Hopefully this helps some future builder have less headaches than me.
