Allegro Lite Build Part 1

I bought this "short kit" ages ago and only recently got the itch to actually build it. I bought the kit from Eugene du Plessis who used to fly at VMG with Gert Nieuwoudt. The rib kit and boom come from Laser Art and the fuse is Eugene's own design.
I am quite a slow builder but I'll try and keep the blog updated with my progress. The Allegro is quite an intensive build. The Allegro (AL for short) is basically the 2m baby brother of the 3m Bubble Dancer, both planes designed by Mark Drela of the Supra fame. Look at the Charles Rivers site for more info.
For starters I am going to build the pure thermal plane but plan on building a second "E"-version fuselage specifically for F5J.
