    NOTE: This post was made by Mike Howie. I copied and resubmitted it after I goofed during an edit.


    ARRGH!!!! I forgot to take any pics of the intermediary steps! Got
    sidetracked building the Space Ark Jr. Sorry.

    Nothing untoward happened in the rest of the build, just followed the instructions. And this is what I got. Without doing any trimming, I do get a
    fast glide off a hand toss. It just needs a small bit of finesse and I should get
    a better glide.
