If the wings are still good you can buy just the replacement fuselage from Laine.

Sorry to see the damage, it reminds me of mine after losing orientation at low altitude and high speed.

No worries. Thanks for the suggestion. That's a good idea. There's some minor crack that can be patched. At the moment though, I'm feeling like something else. I'll keep them for when I change my mind in the future.

Ouche! I'm currently doing a fuselage rebuild on mine too - did a stupid thing coming in for a cross wind landing and stalled into a lawn dart instead!

Wow, that was a maiden flight you won't soon forget. I think I'd put the pieces in a box out of sight for a while and fly some airplanes that I feel real comfortable with.
Yea, I won't forget that! Hehe.

I've only got 2 planes to fly. One is a foamy cub I'm saving for my son for when he's ready, the other is the orange Dallaire I just got from the estate sale that I flew for the first time yesterday. It's ok though, I'm not in a hurry.

I've picked my next kit and will start a build log soon...
