  1. Saw Jerry and team out at the IPMS this past summer. Really enjoyed talking to him and Judy. Bought one of his D-9 prints--wish you a speedy recovery Jerry and hope to see you and your gang at the Nats in Va Beach. Best Wish, Brian
  2. Started my build today and came across two very warped wings! Has anyone else that has built this kit experienced this problem and if so, what is the best way to correct the warps? I have the wings halves clamped but not glued together so far. Should I glue the wing halves together and then heat or heat each half separately and then clamp and glue once correct shape has been re-established? Thanks for the help, Brian
