The Andes Bipe is designed by Mariano Gostanian of Argentina. It owes its roots to the Zonda design. The kit itself is produced by CA Model in Argentina.

Unlike the stabs, the Andes wings are of the foam core variety. I’m not sure why there is a mix of construction techniques but I’m sure there is a good reason.

The Andes Bipe stabs are of “built-up” laser cut balsa and ply construction. The workmanship quality looks excellent. The first task was to go over the film with a covering iron to remove any wrinkles and go over the edges.

The fuselage construction is where it all comes together. Literally!
