Not flying yet, but hoping to score an autograph at NARCON this weekend from Vern and Gleda. Later on, I'll build #67 and hope to get Carl to autograph it.

Golden Scout #98 is built. All balsa surfaces treated with Minwax wood harder, but I don't think they needed it, honestly. I was very impressed with the quality of balsa in the kit, but it's just been habit now to use the Minwax. Will coat with Fill N Finish today. Sand and primer tomorrow.
Used a thin bead of epoxy to attach the brass wire.
