Building up the Eaglet was rather fiddly for arthritic hands,but well worth the effort,and I didn't look at the instructions . Vintage Model Co. is very customer comes first. I will be back for more. Thank you. Les Howard. [originally posted on our old website 02/09/2017]
My first model for over 30 years and every bit as much fun as I remember it. The laser-cut parts are a huge advance on the old printed wood. The plan is high quality and very clear, although it helped to download building instructions from another website. Final weight prior to trimming is just over 60g, which seems pretty good and is a tribute to the wood selected by VMC. I am now hooked again, and will be back for more!
Very nice full kit. Recommend! [originally posted on our old website 06/09/2013]
