Has anyone ever finished a DE23? I read all of this blurb about bigger and wider. Still, I ask: Has anyone ever finished and launched a DE23? How did it perform?

I just cut out the openings for the side windows on my DE23. I'm custom building wood frames to get a specific "look". The shapes shown in the drawing don't have any construction details that I've found. :doh:
