Hi there and welcome to kiwikr.co.nz. This site has been created as an on-line builders log to track the construction of my Rand Robinson KR2S aircraft. Navigating the site is hopefully fairly self explanatory, basically the three main tabs above, each contain sub tabs which link to pages with related content. To report any problems with the site or to make comments or suggestions please email me at gavin.magill@gmail.com. I hope you enjoy the site.

Build Progress Summary
I spent this past weekend (12-13 Sept) attaching the port skin of the fuselage to the airframe. I had a mate, Murray Lee - who is into aviation and planes as much as I am, come over and give me a hand but unfortunately we had a bit of a mishap on the Saturday with the batch of glue we were using going off after just 20 minutes after we were only part way through applying the glue. This caused us a bit of grief but we managed to sort it out and get back on track by Sunday afternoon.

Goals For The Coming Week
- Trim the port skin to match the fuselage frame.
- Glue the starboard skin to the fuselage frame.
- Trim the starboard skin to match the fuselage frame.
- Cut and glue together the bottom skin for the fuselage.
