Some before and after photos
the start

the final product.(1st prototype)

The details of the JART control surface hindging and final finishing as part of this build thread, has been moved to the new SA-JARTS Blog (link on the right) as this blog will hopefully reflect all the JART activity in South Africa from now on.
Well its ready to fly,from a lump of blue foam to a sexy soarer,... but time for some reflection , I am sure all scratch builders must get a kick out of admiring their creation prior to that first flight, it is often a long road with pitfalls along the way, but when your beauty takes flight it all seems worthwhile.(especially when it wasnt unpacked out of a box ,but built with your own hands)
I know it gives a deep sense of achievement. Whatever you build and fly ,take pride in your work and enjoy this hobby and all the aspects it has to offer.
The Jart is complete and should fly soon .
Now go build yours I am waiting and impatient.
