Dune Freak 1.2m

I received my Dune Freak kit very quickly from Neil. Kit was well packed for US shipping and arrived in short order, but there were some triangular parts missing and I had to wait on those before beginning assembly of this neat little slope sailplane. I had wanted to take it with me on a recent road trip through the upper Rocky Mountains as there were bound to be some locations that were perfect for flying...but I didn't get it finished in time. I will be flying it on a local slope that is located less that 2 miles from my home and I hope to post images and flight report then.
