Flightpath got a lot of the PP Aeroparts stuff.

Which ladder did you use Alastair?

That one in the pic looks very PP Aeroparts, I've got quite a few of them myself.

I used the P.P.Aeroparts one Kit. Far fewer pieces and far easier to build seeing that time was of the essence.

Here are the frets for both ladders, the one on the right missing it's parts is the P.P.Aeroparts one.



And here is how I added the ladder to the aircraft. Two BIG clamps on one of the wings angled so that the handles of the clamps act as feet keeping the aircraft stable while the Gator Grip dries.



Its not the best thing I have ever built, but it looks ok from a reasonable distance.

It looks darn good from here, but I am over 300 miles away I guess.   ;D

I'll be a lot closer on Saturday of course.  ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
