Good Luck with your build,

 <*< Hi,Colin,I don't think the kit is that mad,just a bit tricky for a first build, you have to spend some time trimming and sanding the parts to
Make them fit properly but this happens with most kits.Mine give good sailing for many years until it came to grief against a concrete block
on the side of the lake,all my fault one, day I will get it out of the loft and repair it,anyway don't give up give it another go,best of luck,Ray.
