I could not afford one as a kid, now I have two on the way plus two TeeDee .020's.

You brought up the pee wee .020 , i have had a pee wee .020 for a long time. I would like to put it in a model and fly it. I had it in a 32 inch So Long model that was kitted by Model Craft , i no longer have that model. I was thinking maybe a Ranger 30. What models would work well with a pee wee .020?

I would think the .020 replica models would fly with a PeeWee .020 although not as fast a climb as with a TeeDee .020. The Basic Yeller is a PeeWee 30 class model designed for PeeWee .020 but do not think there are any kits for PeeWee 30 class.

I have both of the TeeDee .010's now. First one I had running for a short time.  Going to order new spring starters and some other parts.

No doubt engines have sat with fuel residue for a time.

Seeing as we were talking about the Competition Moidels B-70 (which would be a fun one for a PeeWee .020, (providing it's a good PeeWee), how about the Competition Models 'Eaglet', also a short kit by Bob Holman:

About 2/3 down the page.

I've built a few of these, for PeeWee .020 (nice, stable fun sport flyer), TeeDee .020 (nice performer, can be flown in Payload) and even electric.

Bill:
Now that you've got some TD 010's and your experience with Free Flight Contest models, it's time for a TD 010 hot model. Mine came out at 1.25 ounces ready to fly.  Have a peek at my Pocket Rocket dating to 1962 on Outerzone.

Looks good John, is the geodetic version worth the extra work?

I am a firm believer in geodetic ribs. For the little extra time in building they make a rigid wing which will not warp.  It also holds power trim very well.
The triangular fuselage is very light and more rigid than a box fuselage.

The Eaglet and that B-70 look like two good picks. The B-70 is all sheet , so i think the short kit would be a kit.    :)

Outerzone has plans for the Ranger 30. Here's my Ranger 30 with Pee Wee.

A Ranger from recent BMJR kit and the wood was too heavy for rubber power maybe it would work with small glow.
