Any Cruzer builders having issues with outdated drawings? It was redesigned a couple of years ago to make it conform to much of the Super Duty model but the drawings I paid for are woefully outdated. I have to jump between the STOL, SD and Cruzer drawings to try to figure out the building sequence. All three models have some commonality, but you have to figure out for yourself what applies and what doesn't. Additionally, my pick list was also outdated and I make almost weekly calls to Mexico to get a lot of the small hardware which was not shipped with my kit. Midland messed up the construction of my wing spars and made the gear/strut fittings wrong. I spent a half hour venting to Nick in Ontario about my frustrations. I hope it helps.
