Thanks Bob,  As we do not grow spruce here in Australia, i had to bring it in from the USA through Aircraft Spruce and specialty. I love working with it . The Spruce and Birch ply are gorgeous materials to work with. There are a few bits i am short on (some compression struts) and will use Hoop pine for these.

all in all great fun

cheers Paul
