Hi Gents and Ladies,  I'm not sure this idea will get any interest, but I thought I would put it forth.

My idea, for those who really don't want to do a build thread, but still wish to show what they have created.  I figure this also might help someone who really doesn't wish to start a whole new thread just to show a few photos.  It would also help out the administrators of HPA, I would think.  You could probably do one of these "Show Your Newest Creation" threads for each of the major areas, Indoor, Outdoor, RC and CL(U-Control). 

Anyway, what you ya tink? 

BTW, I am in the process of building a Bob Peck Bostonian Pup that I really didn't wish to do a build thread on.  I will be posting a pic of the critter once I have it done.

Sounds like a good idea Caley. I have a few bits and pieces about that are not worth a thread of their own.

If I may kick off with my Gecko design. It's a sport model about peanut size but not based on any full size aircraft. It was drawn a few years back and I do a bit on it now and then. It's overbuilt and overweight but I do plan to finish it at some point...

Jon, Great!  I really don't think that is overbuilt, considering it has a very roundish fuselage that needs lots of stringers.  I guess you could go the route of some of the Japanese mdelers that I think, build with 1/32 or so wood to cut the weight.  Anyway, I really think it is a very nice design, and hope you'll place the plan in the Plans Gallery.  Caley

Hmm, thanks Caley, but I don't think it's quite up to that. Maybe if I redraw a few bits... someday!

Here is an assembled bones shot of the shortly to be released
short kit of the FW 190F. At  this stage the laser cuts are verified
and all corrections made to the blue prints and the laser cut files.

Jon, You're too hard on yourself.  That is one nice airplane.

Mike, Certainly looks nice.  Do you sell the short kits, or are they handled by established retailers?  Caley

Mike,
   Beautiful Focke-Wulf and I'm sure its going to be a big hit. 

Well a while back I introduced my Albatros D3 in another thread. I'm pleased to say that since its release date a month ago, 54 have flown out of here and I have 2 still pending. Not a bad start.

Interesting...

One if the mist important questions for one who draws plans for others to build from is - did you like it?

There is so little feedback - even in this forum - that at times one wonders if anybody actually ever uses these drawings.

I've been waiting to see 400 total downloads to try to start a quarter scale Lazy Bee thread (peanut scale).
We are not quite there yet (I posted the mark II plans just over a week ago), but you sucked me in with this one!

Richard Lamb

PS the Focke Wulf is absolutely gorgeous...
I only wish I could build then that well.

Great bones and planes.  My newest creation is in the P30 thread. 

I wish the pics of these beautiful creations were bigger.  Regardless, I like seeing them...keep em coming!

Hi Caley
This is a good idea, I started a thread "What have You built Lately" last May and got some great replies but being just a thread in General Discussion if there are no replies after a week or so it disappears. I think it should ,as you say have its own section or heading so when browsing it may inspire members to contribute.
regards Dave

Gents, Some very kewl models.

BEAR, Protists are a diverse group of eukaryotic microorganisms?  At least that is what I found out what Proist is.    A diverse group of model airplanes if I translate things correctly.  Caley

That's a great idea Caley.
Here's the last/newest , I call it the 'Brown Russian'.
Mooman picked it out, and I sketched it up as a peanut. Yak52 has 'Dimer' on the board, which no doubt will be awesome (but I think he's standing knee-deep in aligators).
It's a little bit of a porker at 11.2 grams w/o rubber, but has glided well.
It is posted it in the plan gallery.
I'm not usually a warbird type builder. Hopefully, someone else out there can do better.

It's come out really well Tony!

...(but I think he's standing knee-deep in aligators).

I have nooo idea what that means ... but it sounds like me! My version has slipped down the priority list I'm afraid. I kind of stepped up because Jackson was so keen but you've done a really lovely job of it  Cool Has he done a build thread on his yet?

Newest on my board (between three other models) is a modified FROG "HERON".  Had to take a break from the peanut farm and regroup with something larger.

As it is not at all likely that any means of suspending the effect of air-resistance can ever be devised, a flying-machine must always be slow and cumbersome. . . . But as a means of amusement, the idea of aerial travel has great promise.

I finally got most of my Bob Peck Bostonian Pup done.  Just a bit more fiddlin' and it will be ready to crash test.   Grin  Instead of gluing the stab/fin assembly to the fuse, I just added a small hook at the rear of the fuse so I could use a ribbit band to hold things down.  The rear motor peg is the front hold down point.  If I had my druthers, I would've built the stab like most are done, instead of layered like on the plan, but I followed what Mr Peck designed.  May be a reason for the way he did things.  Caley
